Group (Not rated)

Director: Marilyn Freeman. With Carrie Brownstein, Kari Fillipi, Vicki Hollenberg, S. Ann Hall. (106 min.)

Sterritt ** Eight characters attend group-therapy sessions for 21 weeks, and we watch selected moments from their highly emotional sessions, where they face down a variety of daunting psychological problems. The movie teeters on a slippery dividing line between realism and fiction. It gains power from the mercurial nature of its improvised acting and split-screen camera work, though.

Rocco and His Brothers (Not rated)

Director: Luchino Visconti. With Alain Delon, Annie Girardot, Renato Salvatori. (180 min.)

Sterritt **** This extraordinary 1960 epic traces the fortunes of a southern Italian family who migrates north to Milan in search of a better life, focusing memorably on Delon as the clan's idealistic conscience and Salvatori as its enemy within. From its star-studded cast to its indelible camerawork by the legendary Giuseppe Rotunno, it's an unforgettable experience by a revered master of European cinema. In Italian with English subtitles.
