My Name is Asher Lev

Aaron Posner's script is an adaptation of a book by Chaim Potok. It tells the story of a boy from a strictly observant Brooklyn Jewish community whose dawning love of fine art takes an unexpected turn. After a trip to a museum, our youngster becomes fixated on Christian imagery, drawing crucifixes and images of Jesus. His parents, sensibly enough, are disturbed by this development, and it leads to a deep spiritual struggle over heritage, faith, and art that extends well into our protagonist's adulthood (as these inner explorations tend to do).
