CRITICS’ CHOICE

“Midnight Special” — A Michael Shannon-starring drama that announces the arrival of Jeff Nichols as a filmmaker in total control of his technique as well as our emotions.

Barkley Village 16 3D: Thurs. 1:40, 4:10 p.m.

ALSO PLAYING

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” — Zack Snyder, a strong technician whose slam-bang emphatic, occasionally operatic style seems made for comic book adaptations, has been well-served by an adept script co-written by Chris Terrio and David S.

“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” — This next installment taken from the best-selling books is the kind of movie where when a character says “We’re gonna be OK,” you know their troubles are just beginning. Especially if that character’s name happens to be Tris Prior. (2:01) PG-13.
