CHARLIE BARTLETT A contemporary cousin of Ferris Bueller's, Charlie Bartlett (Anton Yelchin) is a rich, likable teen with an entrepreneurial bent. It gets him into trouble at his new high school when he starts playing shrink to his classmates and prescribing meds. This coming-of-age comedy is deftly written and acted with Yelchin again proving he's a gifted performer and Hope Davis and Robert Downey Jr. adding to the fun. (R)

WORTH SEEKING OUT

THE COUNTERFEITERS Inspired by a true story, this absorbing, Oscar-nominated Austrian drama tells how a master forger (Karl Markovics), while a prisoner in a concentration camp, was recruited by the Nazis to make counterfeit British and U.S. currency. Although the job affords him a privileged existence by camp standards, his professional pride soon comes into conflict with a nascent sense of morality. (In German, with subtitles.) (R)
