Liev Schreiber stars as boxer Chuck Wepner in "Chuck."

Chuck Funny, poignant and true story of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner (Liev Schreiber), whose 15-round bout with Muhammad Ali became the inspiration for Sylvester Stallone's Rocky. With Jim Gaffigan, Naomi Watts, and Elisabeth Moss. R (language)

A Quiet Passion This tribute to the genius of the poet Emily Dickinson (Cynthia Nixon) - who spent most of her days holed up inside her childhood home - is by turns funny, tragic, and thrilling. PG-13 (images of war casualties, brief suggestive material)

Their Finest Funny and moving period drama about a woman (Gemma Arterton) in wartime London who stumbles into a job as a screenwriter on a propaganda movie. Witty, borderline screwball feminist comedy wrapped in an emotionally powerful look at the uses of art. With Sam Claflin. PG-13 (violence)
