Another Road Home [STARS 3]

A hopeful note on the conundrum that is Israeli-Palestinian relations is sounded in an emotionally rich documentary by Israeli-born Jewish filmmaker Danae Elon. She tracks down and befriends, in Paterson, N.J., the adult sons of the Arab man who served as her caretaker when she was growing up in Jerusalem. (Not rated)

King's Ransom [STARS 1]

A rancid comedy about a millionaire businessman (Anthony Anderson) who plots his own kidnapping. To borrow one of its own lines, the movie has been "dipped in stupid." (PG-13)

Ladies in Lavender [STARS 2]

Great Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith pair for an endearing, albeit slight, English drama about elderly sisters who aid a handsome Polish shipwreck survivor. (PG-13)
