Deliver Us From Evil (Not Rated)

Director: Amy Berg. With Thomas Doyle, Oliver O'Grady. (101 min.)

Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Amy Berg's documentary is about Father Oliver O'Grady who, during 20 years of service in the Catholic Church, raped dozens of children, including a 9-month-old infant. Although a number of his superiors knew what was going on, he was shuttled from parish to parish to avoid scandal and liability. Berg managed to interview the eerily disassociative and penitent O'Grady in Ireland, where he was deported after eventually serving prison time. She also includes unseen footage of the evasive deposition of Cardinal Roger Mahony, Archbishop of Los Angeles, in connection with O'Grady. Most powerfully, she also films a number of O'Grady's victims as they recount their trauma and, in some cases, loss of faith. Grade: A

Stormbreaker (PG)

Director: Geoffrey Sax. With Alex Pettyfer, Ewan McGregor, Mickey Rourke. (93 min.)

After Ian Rider's assassination, his 14-year-old nephew, Alex, realizes his guardian was an MI6 agent and had been grooming Alex as his unwitting successor. Ian had been spying on a flamboyant CEO, whose megacomputers, distributed to schools, harbor a deadly secret: On boot-up day they'll kill every pupil in Britain. This obvious James Bond take-off for teens may please fans of the Rider books, whose author, Anthony Horowitz, adapted it, but it hasn't a shred of originality. Grade: Cā€“
