All Is Lost Robert Redford stars in J.C. Chandor's majestic, melancholy film about a solo mariner stranded on his boat in the Indian Ocean. There is incredible tension in this ordeal, and Redford makes that tension deeply palpable. PG-13

 

Blue Is the Warmest Color Yes, there is a lot of sex. Graphic sex between two young women. But that's only part of what this extraordinary film is about - a three-hour portrait of a French high school student, shot with a close-up intensity that brings the character out from the screen and into your heart. NC-17

 

How I Live Now A magical, apocalyptic coming-of-age story, adapted from Meg Rosoff's young adult novel and directed with wheeling energy by Kevin Macdonald. A teen love story steeped in alienation and hurt, fused with a near-future nightmare thriller. Saoirse Ronan stars. R
