    Sakharov was a good movie. I liked it. I liked that they didn’t question why they were fighting but continued to stand for what they believed in even though it was hard. I really liked how even though his family was persecuted, he never gave in. I had never heard of Andrei Sakharov and liked hearing his story. It’s important to know about communism so we can fight against the false philosophies. If you are looking for a movie that shows the true story of a loyal countryman who still fights against communism, then I recommend this movie.
