CRITICS’ CHOICE

“A Bigger Splash” — Luca Guadagnino’s movie is a swooning cinematic appeal to the senses — two hours of al fresco lovemaking, gorgeous scenery and simmering erotic warfare with Ralph Fiennes’ acting on glorious, supremely uninhibited display. (2:04) R.

“The Jungle Book” — By turns sweetly amusing and scarily unnerving, crammed with story, song and computer-generated visual splendors, this revisiting of the old Rudyard Kipling tales aims to be a model of modern crowd-pleasing entertainment. (1:51) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 1:55, 4:30, 7:10, 9:40 p.m.; Fri.-Sun.: 1:30, 4:10, 7:20, 9:55 p.m.; Mon. 1:30, 4:10, 6:55, 9:30 p.m.

Barkley Village 16 3D: Thurs. 12:50, 3:40 p.m.

“Love & Friendship” — Whit Stillman has finally made a full-fledged Jane Austen adaptation, a master class on the art of comic timing, taking the author’s early epistolary novella and infusing it with his own droll, mocking spirit and expert way of looking behind societal facades. (1:32) PG.

“Sing Street” — Writer-director John Carney nails that “happy sad” sweet spot in his latest work, about a young man coming of age in Dublin in the 1980s, using the emotional, cathartic power of music to face the hardships of family, first love and school bullies. (1:46) PG-13.

Pickford Film Center: Thurs. 4, 9 p.m.

“Zootopia” — Bursting with a rich blend of timely themes, superb voice work, wonderful visuals and laugh-out-loud wit, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ latest is quite simply a great time at the movies. (Gary Goldstein, March 4) (1:48) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 2:10, 4:45 p.m.

“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” — In the pale update, a dreadful sequel to 2012’s darkly appealing “Snow White and the Huntsman,” nearly every major character dies and comes back to life at least once and a convoluted narrative yields not a single, palpable moment of drama. (1:54) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 3:20 p.m.

“Keanu” — Starring the comedy duo Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, written by Peele and “Key & Peele” alum Alex Rubens and directed by fellow “Key & Peele” veteran Peter Atencio, the hit-and-miss movie is funny for 45 to 50 minutes. Then it’s strained and abrasive and entirely too devoted to action-movie tropes. (1:38) R.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 1, 3:30 p.m.

(1:43) PG-13.

Pickford Film Center: Thurs. 3:45, 6:15, 8:45 p.m.

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Fri.-Wed.: 1, 6:15, 8:45 p.m.
