“Judas and the Black Messiah”

Directed by: Shaka King

USA, 2021; 126 minutes, in English. Rated: R

A film about past history that speaks to the urgency of the present, Shaka King’s debut thriller follows FBI informant William O’Neal (LaKeith Stanfield) as he infiltrates the Illinois Black Panther Party and is tasked with keeping tabs on their charismatic leader, Chairman Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya). A career thief, O’Neal revels in the danger of manipulating both his comrades and his handler. Will he align with the forces of good? Or subdue Hampton and The Panthers by any means, as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover (Martin Sheen) commands?

Plays Sunday, April 18, at 3:30 pm and Tuesday, April 20, at 4 p.m.

“Mank”

Directed by David Fincher

2020, USA; 131 minutes, in English. Rated: R

Shot in black and white, and full of industry characters, glitter and perils, the film takes viewers back to 1930s Hollywood, as seen through the eyes of scathing wit and alcoholic writer Herman J. Mankiewicz as he races to finish the screenplay of one of the most famous films of all time, Orson Welles’s “Citizen Kane.”

Plays Saturday, April 17, at 3:30 p.m. followed by a Q&A with Amanda Seyfried and producer Eric Roth and Tuesday, April 20, at 6:45 p.m.

“Minari”

Directed by: Lee Isaac Chung

USA, 2021; 120 minutes, in English and Korean with English subtitles. Rated: PG-13

A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, “Minari” follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. The family home changes completely with the arrival of their sly, foul-mouthed, but incredibly loving grandmother. Amid the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, “Minari” shows the undeniable resilience of family and what really makes a home.

Plays Monday, April 19, and Thursday, April 22, at 4 p.m.

“My Octopus Teacher”

Directed by: Pippa Ehrlich, James Reed

South Africa, 2020; 85 minutes, in English. Rated: G

After swimming for years in the freezing waters at the Southern tip of Africa, a filmmaker finds an unlikely teacher forging — and documenting — an unusual friendship with an octopus living in the local kelp forest. As their report grows from tenuous, to playful, to bold, the animal shares the marvels and the mysteries of her world.

Plays Saturday, April 17, and Sunday, April 18, at 1 p.m.

“Promising Young Woman”

Directed by: Emerald Fennell

USA, 2020; 108 minutes, in English. Rated: R

From groundbreaking director Emerald Fennell (“Killing Eve”) comes a new take on revenge. Fennell planned her entire artistic vision, down to the music and colors, before the film was made. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman — until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: She’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.

Plays Saturday, April 17, at 6:30 p.m. and Thursday, April 22, at 6:45 p.m.

“Sound of Metal”

Directed by: Darius Marder

USA, 2020; 130 minutes, in English. Rated: R

Driven by Riz Ahmed’s indelible performance, Darius Marder’s highly original debut brings a punk metal vibe to classic melodrama, with the story of an itinerant drummer (Ahmed) whose life begins to unravel when he suddenly loses his hearing and, with it, his identity as a musician.

Friday, April 16, at 5 p.m. and Wednesday, April 21, at 6:45 p.m.

“The Father”

Directed by: Florian Zeller

UK, France, 2021; 97 minutes, in English. Rated: PG-13

Anthony (Anthony Hopkins), is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the caregivers that his daughter, Anne (Olivia Colman), encouragingly introduces. Yet help is becoming a necessity; she can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unraveling. The film warmly embraces real life through loving reflection upon the frailties of human condition.

Plays Friday, April 16, at 4 p.m. and Monday, April 19, at 6:45 p.m.

“The Trial of the Chicago 7”

Directed by: Aaron Sorkin

USA, 2020; 129 minutes, in English, Latin, French with English subtitles. Rated: R

Neither an exercise in nostalgia, nor a history lesson, Aaron Sorkin’s second feature as a director brings a trial that transfixed the nation back to life. Charged with conspiracy to incite a riot at the 1968 National Democratic Convention, peaceful protest organizers Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden and Bobby Seale face judgment in this flamboyant courtroom drama. The film that thrives on Sorkin’s signature writing style and the impeccable cast. Its themes of social justice, political upheaval and freedom of speech are as relevant as ever. It even has comedy.

Plays Sunday, April 18, at 3:30 p,m. followed by a Q&A with editor Alan Baumgarten and Wednesday, April 21, at 4 p.m.
