The Fifth Estate

Rated R, running time 124 minutes.

Starts Friday at Sierra Cinemas.

Triggering our age of high-stakes secrecy, explosive news leaks and the trafficking of classified information, WikiLeaks forever changed the game.

Now, in a dramatic thriller based on real events, “The Fifth Estate” reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organization. The story begins as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel Brühl) team up to become underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. On a shoestring, they create a platform that allows whistleblowers to anonymously leak covert data, shining a light on the dark recesses of government secrets and corporate crimes. Soon, they are breaking more hard news than the world’s most legendary media organizations combined. But when Assange and Berg gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history, they battle each other and a defining question of our time: what are the costs of keeping secrets in a free society and what are the costs of exposing them? —Disney

The Artist and the Model

Rated R, running time 104 minutes. In French and Spanish with English subtitles.

Shows Sun, 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20 at The Nevada Theatre.

Summer of 1943. In an occupied France, not far away from the Spanish border, a famous old sculptor (Jean Rochefort) who is tired of life and wars finds a renewed desire to work on his last masterpiece when a beautiful young Spanish girl comes knocking after escaping a refugee camp in the south of France. This movie explores similar themes as “Renoir,” which we showed recently. “The lovely and poignant drama The Artist and the Model stirringly presents art, life and death as one irrevocably tangled trio.” –Gary Goldstein, L.A. Times.

Enough Said

Rated PG-13, running time 93 minutes.

Starts Friday at Sutton Cinemas.

A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter’s impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) — a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems “almost perfect” except for one prominent quality: She rags on her ex-husband way too much. Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne’s ex. “Enough Said” is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again. — Fox Searchlight
