Bend It Like Beckham A winning comedy about an Anglo-Indian teen and her parents. (PG-13)

The Core A sci-fi thriller that's cheesy fun. Six terranauts journey to the center of the earth to save the planet. Hilary Swank stars. (PG-13)

The Good Thief Nick Nolte gives another terrific, if mumbling, performance as an aging thief turned junkie on the French Riviera. He hopes to pull off one last heist in director Neil Jordan's richly textured remake of the 1955 French classic Bob le Flambeur. (R)

Nowhere in Africa This sweeping, handsome drama about a Jewish family adjusting to life in Kenya after escaping from Nazi Germany just nabbed the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. It tells a story that's fresh, but works too hard at giving each character's point of view. (Not rated)
