Parents and children do their eternal dance of mutual misunderstanding in two of this week's best films; the rest range from a gentle romantic fantasy to a cautionary apocalyptic tale.
This weekend the movies take a breather between the Spring Break crowd pleasers and the big summer blockbusters, offering a mix of small-focus comedy, documenatry, and thriller.
Our Movies For Grownups choices this week include just one new film and not a favorite, at that. Still, some would say you could have worse company than Brad Pitt, Cormac McCarthy and Ridley Scott.
The Counselor is a mess of a movie. That's surprising, given the talent in this modern noir - Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt - and a screenplay (his first) by Cormac McCarthy, the esteemed author who has won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. As a screenwriter, the 80-year-old turns out to be a great novelist.
