Star Wars: Episode III—Revenge of the Sith

Better than the last two films in the series, which isn't exactly extravagant praise. As the plot accelerates in the second half and Anakin Skywalker inevitably heads for the dark side, Sith finally starts swinging. Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman star. (PG-13)

Saving Face

In a warmhearted, enjoyable comedy, a young Chinese-American doctor (Michelle Krusiec) deals with her own gayness and the fact that her single mother (Joan Chen, in a lovely performance) is pregnant. Worth seeking out. (R)
