    White's film is a love letter not just to Kelly and the Beatles, but also to postwar working-class Liverpool.

    Bahrani sometimes pushes too hard as he reaches for big drama. But when the story works, it has a dark power that draws shrewdly upon his two leads' screen charisma.

    Well-told and charming, debuting writer-helmer Georgia Lee's comedy-drama Red Doors is big on heart but never sappy. Without overdoing the quirk factor or the melodrama, Lee shows a sure feel for family dynamics, and her light touch brings out the best in the ensemble's lovely, understated performances.

    Despite effective moments, VanAlkemade's film is too diffuse. He gives us snippets of the group's spirited performances, but their effect on audiences remains unclear.

    It's the loosely connected encounters of the early sequences that are remarkable in their poignancy and humor.

    In Ashok's reunion with the love of his life (Mary Steenburgen) — the chance to see her after many years is the true reason for his trip — the film taps into a tender wistfulness, Steenburgen making her character's every glance and hesitation resonate with emotion.

    Those not in the smackdown frame of mind will find an overabundance of head-butts, body slams and pounding aural effects -- this is a definite contender for loudest film of the year -- but also will discover instances of innovative, spectacular stuntwork and, though the comic interplay often falls flat, a story with heart.

    Cunningham's 1990 novel makes an assured, if not entirely satisfying, transition to the big screen in this terrifically acted exploration of the bonds that transcend traditional notions of family.

    For more than half the film's running time, it's an engaging one. Centering on the boys' hardscrabble formative years, first-time director Breno Silveira delivers an assured first hour before losing grasp of his material.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    It's a plot that never takes hold, a mystery devoid of suspense... But the actors' unforced chemistry defies the artifice.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The low gore quotient and emphasis on young love might disappoint genre purists, but for those open to the idea of a gently goofy mash-up, the film is strong on atmosphere and offers likably low-key, if somewhat bland, charms.

    Cameron Crowe's feature documentary is among his most effective and deeply felt work.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Doesn't depart from the inspirational coming-of-age formula. But it has got enough heart and disco-fever exuberance to connect with audiences.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    An intensely realized, beautifully shot drama.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Has a rollicking time reaching its foreseeable conclusion.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Audiences will find themselves face to face with their own prejudices, assumptions and, perhaps, squeamishness.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Boasts appealing leads and dazzling court play, but the film never rises above its by-the-numbers plot to generate emotional heat.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A spirited comic drama, toplined by Moore's lovely performance.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    At once understated and slightly pulpy, the film comes down squarely on the side of compassion. It’s no polemic, but neither is it as character-driven as it aims to be.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    The film is a bracingly romantic drama that's alive with a mature sense of passion and mystery.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 40 Sheri Linden
    "Them" is spun from callow romantic notions, the sort that make for heady moments. What's conspicuously missing is any grasp of the lovers themselves.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    (Untitled) assembles a collection of vivid character-types, sometimes a breath short of caricature. But for all its sharp comic angles, Jonathan Parker's film takes its central questions seriously and avoids the pat follow-your-bliss answers Hollywood prefers.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The film is faithful to the book's tone of dark ache and much of its detail and for the most part terrifically cast. But Towne can't overcome an essential challenge of the material: Arturo and Camilla are constructs and ciphers as much as they are vivid characters -- difficult roles, to be sure. Neither the screenplay nor the actors manage to get far under their skin.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 80 Sheri Linden
    The actors, all strong, give the lyrical but never artificial dialogue the ring of life. Pearce is riveting as a go-getter who finds himself trapped between a murky past and a future defined by ambition.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Sheri Linden
    Although it is overloaded with backstory and often tries too hard, Aurora Borealis finds a reasonable balance between romance and family drama.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Despite some choppy transitions and a few melodramatic moments that don't work, the film casts an effective, deepening chill.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The script excels at character-driven laughs, cerebral yet goofy, without resorting to sitcom stereotypes or genitalia-focused stupidity.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Bears a wealth of imaginative riches and a signature mix of outre personalities and gadgets.

    Richard Ray Perez's documentary concerns the myth more than the man.
