A Bigger Splash

In this loose remake of Jacques Deray's languidly erotic 1969 thriller La Piscine, a glam rock superstar (Tilda Swinton) and her documentary filmmaking lover (Matthias Schoenaerts) retreat to the isolated Mediterranean island of Pantelleria. But their quiet vacation is soon crashed by a loud, libidinous record producer (Ralph Fiennes) and his Lolita-like daughter (Dakota Johnson from 50 Shades of Grey). The visit kicks off some nostalgic flashbacks and a bunch of questionable behavior. Where it all ends up is at the whims of the slow-burning script. But there's plenty of nudity and crackerjack acting to keep things interesting, even when the script fails to deliver on its ominous promise. 125 minutes R. (Opens Friday 5/27)

Fireworks Wednesday

Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, About Elly) wrote and directed this 2006 drama about a middle-class maid (About Elly's Taraneh Alidoosti) stuck in the midst of a domestic dispute between her new boss and his wife at the start of the Persian New Year. Is this about infidelity or something far worse? In Farsi with English subtitles. 102 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 5/27)
Guild Cinema Fri-Tue 6:00

The Idol

The contentious Gaza Strip is the setting for this idealistic musical drama (based on a real story) about a brother and sister who grow up dreaming of getting their neighborhood band on stage at the world-famous Cairo Opera Hall. Years later, when auditions for "Arab Idol" are announced, young Mohammed (Tawfeek Barhom) sees a path to his lifelong dream. But how can he get across the closed border to perform? In Arabic with English subtitles. 100 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 5/27)
Guild Cinema Fri-Tue 3:45, 8:15

Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet

Ten international directors (led by The Lion King's Roger Allers) tackle Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran's much-loved collection of prose poetry. The spiritual life lessons of Gibran's text have been reduced to three-minute stanzas, and an overarching story has been added--something about an exiled artist fleeing his homeland with daughter and housekeeper in tow. It's imaginative, but choppy. Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek and Quvenzhané Wallis provide the voices. 84 minutes PG. (Opens Saturday 5/28)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 12:00

“... And yet, I can’t help but feel our hats could be larger.”

Love & Friendship

Erudite American filmmaker Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco, Damsels in Distress) finally finds a kinship in British author Jane Austen. Here, he adapts a long-lost and rather scandalous Austen novella about a gold-digging widow named Lady Susan (Kate Beckinsale, at her best) who shows up on the doorstep of her in-laws and proceeds to romance her sister-in-law's eligible young brother (Xavier Samuel)--that is until Lady Susan's teenaged daughter gets kicked out of boarding school. Now our sensibly unromantic protagonist has got two get herself and her daughter properly wed. The cast (also encompassing Chloë Sevigny, Stephen Fry and Morfydd Clark) is in tip-top shape and the script is hilariously cynical. FULL REVIEW: Jane Austen anti-romance adds the wit of a modern sophisticate by Devin D. O’Leary (5/19/2016). 92 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 5/26)
Century 14 Downtown Fri-Thu 12:00pm, 2:25, 4:50, 7:15, 9:45

Making a Killing: Guns, Greed and NRA

Documentarian Robert Greenwald (Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism, Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price) offers up stories of how guns, and the billions made off of them, affect the lives of everyday Americans. Personal stories of people from across the country who have been affected by gun violence are spotlighted. The aim of it all, of course, is to expose how gun manufacturers and the National Rifle Association consistently oppose responsible legislation for the sake of profit. 100 minutes Unrated. (Opens Wednesday 6/1)
Guild Cinema Wed-Thu 3:45, 6:00, 8:15

Trailer War

From the deep, dark vaults of the legendary Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas, comes this mind-bending collection of "coming attractions" trailers from around the world and throughout movie history. Here's your chance to check out dozens of three-minute masterpieces advertising insane, inventive, exploitative, explosive cult films you should probably never watch while sober. 113 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 5/27)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30

X-Men: Apocalypse

The X-Men timeline (rebooted all to hell by 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past) heads into the 1980s with a handful of familiar faces (James McAvoy's Professor X, Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique) and a bunch of unfamiliar ones (Sophie Turner's Jean Grey, Alexandra Shipp's Storm). This time around an immortal mutant from ancient Egypt (The Force Awakens' Oscar Isaac) is back and trying to wipe out all of humanity. There's plenty of action to be had, but the script feels far too cliché-filled and retrograde explodey in today's post-Civil War MCU world. 144 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 5/26)
