Meet nine-year old Saige, a talented artist with a passion for horses, in this modern-day story about finding your voice! Saige is excited about the new school year, until she discovers that art-her favorite class-has been cut. On top of that, her best friend, Tessa, seems to be spending more and more time with another girl. For help, Saige turns to her grandma Mimi, a well-known artist and horse-woman, who inspires her to take action. Can Saige find the courage to overcome her fears and save the art program-and her friendship with Tessa? Heart-warming, empowering, and fun, it's a movie for every girl who has ever dreamed big.

I have never seen an "American Girl" film, and in fact have been quite cynical of the obvious marketing goals. Well, this film belies my prior views, as it is worth every second of watching.
The writing is for young girls, of course, but I am an adult male who likes "Batman" films, and the writing, quickly-paced direction, and acting (what an extraordinary bunch of little girl actresses!) all combined to bring tears to all our eyes.
I don't give it a "10" for one reason: I dislike the constant warm back- lighting; it is reminiscent of those cheesy "wholesome breakfast" ads where people eat surrounded by wheat fields early in the morning.
If you get a chance to see this re-run, please do yourself a favor and don't miss it!
