Sasha Was Here
T U E 1 4 M A Y | 9 . 3 0 P M
A compelling social drama that addresses the universal need for love. A middle-class couple wants to adopt a perfect little girl but they end up being offered a rebellious 12-year-old boy instead. The troublemaker Sasha loves to sing, read, eat, go fishing, play football and impersonate voices of other people. Rejected by his biological father, he feels imprisoned in his orphanage. This is when happily married Jurga and Tomas arrive. But can they be family?
What critics say:
"...its gentle cinematography and soundtrack supports the main issue. Adoption is a matter of affection, not a matter of course."
