Clos­ing the Ring ( M): Richard At­ten­bor­ough’s new film cuts back and forth be­tween 1944 and 1991, but this story of lost love is com­pro­mised by un­likely sit­u­a­tions and un­be­liev­able char­ac­ters. The trans­for­ma­tion of the cen­tral char­ac­ter from life- lov­ing young wo­man ( Mis­cha Bar­ton) to bad- tem­pered old one ( Shirley MacLaine) is just one of the prob­lems. — D. S.
