>Cradle Will Rock Ambitious, passionate and sprawling film by writer-director Tim Robbins focuses on artistic ferment during the Great Depression. (R)

The End of the Affair Radiant Julianne Moore and Ralph Fiennes star in an affecting romance set in World War II-era London. Stays with you. (R)

Galaxy Quest Smarter-than-it-looks comedy features Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver as has-been stars of a Star Trek-like TV show who find themselves lost in actual space. Sure cure for winter blahs. (PG)

Girl, Interrupted Winona Ryder heads for the loony bin, where the actress finds her best role in years. (R)

Magnolia Prodigiously talented director-writer Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights) will make a great movie someday, but this three-hour ensemble drama tries too hard. Tom Cruise, however, gives an electric performance. (R)

Next Friday Drug, sex and potty jokes abound in a dumb comedy that's entirely skippable this Friday and every other day of the week. (R)

Play It to the Bone Woody Harreison and Antonio Banderas play rival boxers in a rambling, disappointing noncontender from sportscentric director Ron Shelton (Bull Durham and Tin Cup). (R)
