The Westview, one of Baltimore's earliest multiplexes, has recently begun an adventurous art film policy; so ambitious is the theater's management to crack the upscale market that at one point it had "Europa, Europa," "Mediterraneo," "Night on Earth" and "Where Angels Fear to Tred" playing simultaneously. That's a film festival in a bucket!But "For Sasha," the new film at the Westview, isn't an art film. It isn't even close to an art film. In fact, it's an anti-art film.In the original French, its title is "Pour Sasha," but I would call it "Poor Sasha," because poor Sasha is in a turgid, overwhelming and pulpy French romantic melodrama set against a somewhat mythologized version of the Six-Day War. It's derived, moreover, entirely from long-defunct Hollywood formulas; it even has violins at the mushy parts.

The revived Broadway musical "Pippin" will head out on a national tour in September with a cast that includes Sasha Allen, a finalist on NBC's "The Voice," in the role of Leading Player. Adding a cool bit of history to the production will be Tony Award-winning actor John Rubinstein as Charles. Rubinstein created the title role of the musical on Broadway in 1972. That role will be played on tour by Kyle Selig, a veteran of the "Book of Mormon" tour. The tour launches in Denver and will reach Baltimore's Hippodrome in June 2015.

Michelle Obama had a choice Monday: accompany her husband to California to hobnob with the president and first lady of China or stay home to celebrate the 12th birthday of younger daughter, Sasha. She chose to stay home. Michelle Obama has declared herself “mom in chief.” A few months ago she raised eyebrows when she slipped and described herself as a single mom. I'm sure many days she feels like it. Some Chinese apparently are viewing her decision to stay home for a “family trifle” as a snub to their glamorous first lady.

Ever since she was a little girl bouncing off the furniture, Sasha Smallwood has liked flying through the air. Now, as a sophomore pole vaulter at Pikesville, she does it almost every day - reaching a Class 1A state-record 11 feet, 1 inch in winning the state indoor championship two months ago in only her second year in the sport. Small for a pole vaulter at 5 feet 2, Smallwood, 15, hopes to reach the Olympics someday, but first she wants to qualify for the Junior Olympics this summer. She will be vaulting Thursday at the Penn Relays.

FREDERICK -- You could say that Diana and Mike Bartel became instant parents. They didn't do it the nine-month way. Nor did they go through a long, drawn-out adoption process. Six weeks after the Bartels saw pictures of Russian sisters, Masha, 4 1/2 , and Sasha, 3 1/2 , the girls came to Frederick to live.Adoption had always intrigued Mrs. Bartel, 35, and Mr. Bartel, 34, who might someday have a biological child of their own. In late October, the couple went to a public meeting on adoption in Rockville, Montgomery County.

Petropolis Anya Ulinich Viking / 324 pages / $24.95 Debut author Anya Ulinich fits many tantalizing and telling details into the opening pages of her smart, comedic, cross-cultural, picaresque novel, Petropolis. She briskly conveys the surreal poverty and dilapidation of Asbestos 2, a desolate Siberian town. Not only is Asbestos 2 named after a carcinogenic mineral, the town was also the site of one of the gulag's many labor camps. It's a rough place even in 1992, but Lubov Alexandrovna Goldberg, the head librarian and a proud member of the intelligentsia, is determined to bring culture into her 14-year-old daughter's life.

It's the news you expect to hear about your 2001 Honda Civic. Or anything, really, that's made of steel, wire and rubber. Cars are totaled -- not dogs. Yet that's exactly what an insurance company told one woman: Sorry m'am. Your dog's been totaled. According to this crazy report out of Denver, a woman named Marcia Pinkstaff told ABC7 News that her Lab mix named Sasha, who's 9, was crossing the street in a crosswalk when a van hit her. Sasha was injured, but survived.

She may no longer be the headliner - that's the guy with the recently minted Olympic gold medal - but Sasha Cohen still commands attention every time she glides out on the ice. From her supple spirals and dizzying spins to her fiery intensity and porcelain doll beauty, the 2006 U.S. figure skating champion and Olympic silver medalist leaves no doubt that she's the leading lady of the Smucker's Stars on Ice national tour, which comes to Washington's Verizon...

Tanya Lawson's brightly painted orange fingernails glide along the keyboard, tap-tap-tapping under the fluorescent perma-glow of the NeighborCare pharmacy data processing center. Lawson, 43, handles one billing claim after another from a lonely cubicle by the wall. About the only other sound is the gurgle and hiss of the fax machine spitting out more prescriptions. It's Monday at 5:30 a.m., and Howard County is just waking up under a streaky graphite sky. Lawson, on the job four hours already, has barely begun her workday.

This year has been a sports fan's feast. The Wimbledon men's final Sunday, the unforgettable Rafael Nadal-Roger Federer duel, is only the latest gem, after the Super Bowl, the NCAA men's basketball title game, Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4 of the NBA Finals and the playoff for the U.S. Open golf championship. Can it get any better? Maybe. But a better question is: Can 2008 make us forget 2007? Probably not. But this year does offer a soul-stirring reminder of why we are all addicted to sports.
