THE DARK MATTER OF LOVE
US PREMIERE Director Sarah McCarthy (The Sound of Mumbai: A Musical) looks at the timely topic of Americans adopting Russian orphans—just prior to the controversial ban imposed by Vladimir Putin. Former Disney employees Claudio and Cheryl Diaz decide to adopt a girl and twin boys at once, but nothing can prepare them for what’s to come. As the new family copes, they’re aided by researchers whose work teaches ways to strengthen parent-child bonds. This touching portrait shows we all have a lot to learn.
