Director: Nora Ephron. With Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell, Shirley MacLaine, Michael Caine. (95 min.)
Sterritt ** See review, at right.
Director: Louis Malle. With Jeanne Moreau, Maurice Ronet, Yori Bertin, Charles Denner. (88 min.)
Sterritt **** A plan for a perfect murder goes wildly wrong in this 1958 melodrama by one of France's great filmmakers. Miles Davis and associates improvised the close-to-perfect jazz score. In French with freshly translated subtitles.
Director: Angela Robinson. With Lindsay Lohan, Matt Dillon, Cheryl Hines, Michael Keaton. (95 min.)
Sterritt ** A teen who yearns for car-racing glory (Lohan) outwits her worried dad (Keaton) and leaves a smirky rival (Dillon) in the dust with the help of Herbie, the Volkswagen with a mind of his own who became a movie star in "The Love Bug" in 1968. Utterly predictable, but pleasant enough for its young target audience.
Director: Ziad Doueiri. With Vahina Giocante, Mohammed Khouas, Edmonde Franchi, Karim Ben Haddou. (89 min.)
Sterritt *** A complicated, often inscrutable, flirtation builds between two young folks in a poor French neighborhood. Superbly acted, especially by Giocante as the teasing 16-year-old instigator. In French with subtitles.
Director: Luc Jacquet. With plenty of penguins, voice of Morgan Freeman. (80 min.)
