Picks and Pans Review: Also Playing

And Now Ladies & Gentlemen: Like a sappy pop song, the latest drama by French schmaltz king Claude Lelouch (A Man and a Woman) has an undeniable appeal, but that doesn't make it good. The always excellent Jeremy Irons is a jewel thief and Patricia Kaas a lounge singer. Both end up in Morocco, where they bond over their shared medical ills. (PG-13)

The Magdalene Sisters: Definitely worth seeing. Based on true stories, this harrowing drama depicts the abusive treatment suffered by supposedly "wayward" young women confined to Irish convents in the 1960s. (R)
