We Are the Best! Pipsqueak misfits in early '80s Stockholm start a punk band - three girls slashing and thrashing against parents, teachers and classmates in Lukas Moodysson's exuberant, compassionate coming-of-age gem. No MPAA rating

Ida Two women - an orphan raised in a convent, preparing to take her vows, and a hard-bitten former prosecutor and judge - meet in Pawel Pawlikowski's extraordinary film, embarking on a trip across the bleak terrain of 1960s communist Poland - a journey at once tragic, hopeful, and unforgettable. PG-13

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon Mike Myers directs this fast and affectionate portrait of the fabled music- and movie-biz mega-manager who steered the careers of Alice Cooper and Teddy Pendergrass, among many others, who crossed paths with just about everybody (Jimi, Janis, Cary - as in Cary Grant), and whose personal journey goes from the sybaritic to the spiritual.
