Cave of Forgotten Dreams Werner Herzog's fantastic voyage into the Chauvet caves in France's Dordogne region is a poetic look at a Paleolithic gallery of paintings and sculptures created 30,000 years ago. Unrated, but suitable for 10 and older

Super 8 J.J. Abrams' sci-fi adventure, a tribute to Steven Spielberg films of the 1980s, has awestruck, aw-shucks teen spirit and wonder. Excellent performances by Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning. PG-13

The Tree of Life This stunning and imagistic film from Terrence Malick contrasts the life cycle of the Earth with that of an American family in the 1950s. With Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. PG-13
