New England Premiere - My Name Is Asher Lev follows the journey of
a controversial young Jewish painter torn between his Hassidic upbringing
and his desire to paint. His artistic gift threatens to estrange him
from his sheltered religious community in postwar Brooklyn and the
parents he loves. While his mother is caught between her son and her
husband, must choose between his art and his faith. “Not a dry eye in
the house.” (Variety)
