Awake: The Life of Yogananda

This "unconventional" biography takes a look at the Hindu swami Paramahansa Yogananda, who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. George Harrison and Deepak Chopra are interviewed. There's a lot of archival material and "metaphoric imagery." 84 minutes Unrated. (Opens Wednesday 3/4)
Guild Cinema Wed-Fri 5:30

Beloved Sisters

German filmmaker Dominik Graf (A Map of the Heart, The Invincibles) directs this high-tone, discretely erotic tale based (somewhat anyway) on the true story of sisters Charlotte and Caroline von Lengefeld, who both fell in love with post-Enlightenment writer and philosopher Friedrich Schiller. The idealistic (and rather emblematic of its late-18th century time period) ménage à trois devolves, as expected, into some third-act jealousy and betrayal. But the director mounts a lush, literate period romance, and his actors are committed to the emotional intensity of it all. In German and French with English subtitles. 138 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 2/27)
Guild Cinema Fri-Tue 12:30, 7:45

Charade

Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn get all romantic and suspenseful in this 1963 Hitchcock-style mystery about a woman being chased around Paris by a bunch of dangerous men who want to get their hands on a fortune her late husband stole. Director Stanley Donen (Singin' in the Rain) adds some welcome wit to the sophisticated screenplay. 113 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 3/1)
Century 14 Downtown Sun 2:00; Wed 2:00, 7:00
Century Rio Sun 2:00; Wed 2:00, 7:00

Dalai Lama Awakening

This "newly edited director's cut" adds more footage to director Khashyar Darvich's look at the "profound and life-changing journey of innovative Western thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama." Shot over a period of 15 years, the film has won 12 awards and been screened over 1,000 times. Among the "thinkers" are the people behind The Secret and What the Bleep Do We Know!? The director will be on hand for a brief post-film Q&A on Thursday and Friday night. 120 minutes Unrated. (Opens Wednesday 3/4)
Guild Cinema Wed-Fri 3:00, 7:30

Focus

Will Smith is a big-money con man who hires a new "intern" in the form of sexy but naive Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street). Years later she returns as an accomplished femme fatale to throw a monkey wrench into his best-laid plans. 104 minutes R. (Opens Friday 2/27)

A La Mala

From Mexico comes this lightweight rom-com about an attractive, aspiring actress (popular TV star Aislinn Derbez) who promises to help a friend with a little domestic problem--pretending to flirt with her boyfriend in order to test his fidelity. This leads our heroine to a whole new, lucrative career. As is the nature of these things, she eventually falls in love for real with one of her "marks." In Spanish with English subtitles. 99 minutes (Opens Friday 2/27)
Century Rio Fri-Thu 10:30am, 1:20, 4:10, 7:00, 9:50

The Lazarus Effect

From the director of Jiro Dreams of Sushi (really?) comes this inexpensive, Insidious/Sinister-esque horror flick about a bunch of med students who discover a way to bring the dead back to life--with predictably ghostly repercussions. The atypical cast includes "The O.C." babe Olivia Wilde, mumblecore director/actor Mark Duplass and Evan Peters (from "American Horror Story"). 83 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 2/27)

Modern Times

Charlie Chaplin's most inventive comedy gets a re-release. Chaplin (in his immortal Little Tramp persona) tries to surive in today's (or, at least, 1936's) industrialized world with the help of a beautiful homeless girl (Paulette Goddard). The story is less sentimental than most of Chaplin's films and features some truly inspired sight gags in a highly mechanized factory setting. Double-featured with À Nous la Liberté. 87 minutes Unrated. (Thursday 2/26)
SUB Theater Fri 8:00; Sat 6:00; Sun 3:00

A Nous la Liberté

This famous "left-wing satirical comedy" came out of France in 1931. In it, an ex-convict (Raymond Cordy) works his way up from a salesman to the owner of a highly-mechanized factory--and then gives it away to the workers. This was embroiled in a lawsuit for more than a decade on the claim that Charlie Chaplin plagiarized many ideas from it for his film Modern Times. Appropriately, it's double-featured with Modern Times. 97 minutes Unrated. (Opens Thursday 2/26)
SUB Theater Fri 6:00; Sat 8:00; Sun 1:00

Song of the Sea

From Oscar-nominated Irish animator Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells) comes this gorgeous, storybook cartoon about a young girl named Saoirse, who turns out to be the last of the selkies, a mythical race of people who can transform from human to seal. The simple, unhurried story is aimed mostly at small children. But the mystical atmosphere, ethereal music and painstaking imagery will appeal to fantasy fans of all ages. 93 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 2/27)
Guild Cinema Fri-Tue 3:45, 5:45

Timbuktu

A rural cattle herder (Ibrahim Ahmed) and his family who reside in the dunes of Timbuktu find their quiet lives--which are typically free of the urban Jihadists determined to control their faith--abruptly disturbed. An Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. In English, French, Arabic, Bambara, and Songhay with English subtitle 97 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 2/27)
High Ridge Fri-Sun 12:40, 4:20, 7:15, 10:10; Mon-Thu 12:40, 4:20, 7:15
