On the Big Screen This Week: Frustrated Sculptors, Heroic Teen Stuntwomen, and Kafka

Pretty much every movie you can catch in theaters this week.

Promotional stills|

Scenes from ‘Polite Society’ and ‘The Trial.’

I've been too ensconced in MSPIFF, now entering its second week, to keep up with most big new releases. (Ari Aster will have to wait.) But I do recommend two film festival movies that are screening more widely now: Polite Society and Showing Up. And speaking of MSPIFF, here's my preview, ICYMI. I'll also have a mid-fest report up tomorrow.
