My Name Is Asher Lev says
He saw beauty in the darkness. His parents saw evil.

My Name is Asher Lev is a powerful adaptation of Chaim Potok's critically-acclaimed novel chronicling a young painting prodigy growing up in a Hasidic community.

Set in post-WWII Brooklyn, young Asher's story unfolds against a backdrop of tradition and faith. But when his art comes in conflict with his religious identity, Asher must choose between family and purpose. A story of growth and perseverance, Aaron Posner's adaptation of this modern classic is a touching examination of the artist's journey.
