The Big Sick

Mon., July 24, 2017 thru Thu., August 3, 2017

Directed by Michael Showalter. US. 2017. R. 119 minutes. Lionsgate. Digital.

“Judd Apatow’s durable formula of timid, geeky men, far-more-mature girlfriends and their huggably awkward parents gets a welcome infusion of cross-cultural tension—and some scary medical realities—in The Big Sick, a dynamite romantic comedy of intimate proportions. Apatow is only the producer here (Michael Showalter directs with a minimum of stylistic intrusion), but the creative prime mover is actor-writer Kumail Nanjiani, better known as . . .

A Ghost Story

Fri., July 28, 2017 thru Thu., August 3, 2017

Directed by David Lowery. US. 2017. R. 87 minutes. A24. Digital.

“The Ghost in writer-director David Lowery’s “A Ghost Story” is an honest-to-goodness old-school ghost: white sheet, eye-holes, the whole bit. The first time he appears, it’s a great visual gag. An unnamed man (played by Casey Affleck) has recently died, and is laying under a sheet on a slab at the morgue, where his unnamed wife (Rooney Mara) has just identified his corpse . . .

Swim Team

Limited Engagement starts Saturday, August 26

Directed by Lara Stolman. US. 2016. PG. 1 hour 30 minutes. Argot Pictures. Digital.

“Lara Stolman’s Swim Team is long enough to break and warm your heart in equal measure — which is about what you’d expect from a documentary about teenagers with autism who are training to compete in the Special Olympics. To its enormous credit, Swim Team is a very specific film that doesn’t engage with the often acrimonious and ill-informed debates about what causes autism. Nor does Stolman . . .
