CRITICS’ CHOICE

“Cafe Society” – Woody Allen’s new film, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Steve Carell, is of course funny, but it also ends up, almost without our realizing it, trafficking in memory, regret and the fate of relationships in a world of romantic melancholy. (1:36) PG-13.

“Hunt for the Wilderpeople” – This wonderful New Zealand film has a gently absurdist quality, a simultaneously sweet and subversive sensibility all its own, mixing warmth, adventure and comedy in ways that consistently surprise. Don’t miss it. (1:41) PG-13.

Pickford Film Center: Sun. 11; Wed. 6:30 p.m.

“The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble” – It was a given that this Morgan Neville documentary would feature fine music, but it’s as concerned with emotion as it is with performance, investigating how so much joyous music was able to come out of exploration, disturbance, even pain. (1:36) NR.

ALSO PLAYING

“Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie” – Like the BBC sitcom that inspired it, it is a raucously funny, often endearing, subversively feminist, bloody good time. (1:30) R.

“Captain Fantastic” – The film’s initially beguiling charm curdles into a dispiritingly familiar mix of sentimentality and self-satisfaction, succumbing to the very complacency its characters claim to abhor. (1:58) R.

“Finding Dory” – Determined Dory, the crowd-pleasing forgetful sidekick in Pixar’s 2003 animated fish tale “Finding Nemo,” is now front and center and the results are only sporadically encouraging. (1:43) PG-13.

“Ghostbusters” – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon have chemistry to burn in a cheerful summer lark that in many ways improves on the 1984 original, but peters out well before its overblown Times Square climax. (1:56) PG-13.

“Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” – Dinesh D’Souza’s rambling, overwrought diatribe is another shrewdly timed, heavy-handed agenda in the guise of a truth-seeking, nonfiction film. (1:46) PG-13.

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

“Ice Age: Collision Course” – Simply a perfunctory, watered-down entry in the animated series that feels like it should have been released on home video. (1:34) PG.

“The Legend of Tarzan” – Though Alexander Skarsgard is excellent in the title role, the rest of the film tries too hard to modernize itself, with unhappy results. (1:49) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:30, 3:10 p.m.

“Lights Out” – The tale of a restless evil spirit who suffers from an extreme aversion to light, this nifty little chiller may be the first movie of its kind to unite the pleasure of a good haunting with the horror of an unpaid electricity bill. (1:21) PG-13.
