PRODI­GAL SONS As doc­u­men­tary filmmaker Kimberly Reed ex­plores the pains and se­crets that haunt her past in Mon­tana, she re­al­izes that there is much to re­solve. Born male and now gen­der-tran­si­tioned to a woman, Reed — who nar­rates — also copes with the out­bursts of her adopted adult brother, Marc, who has se­vere be­hav­ioral prob­lems. This jolt­ing por­trait of hu­man iden­tity and sib­ling ri­valry brims with depth, hon­esty, and the un­pre­dictabil­ity of emo­tional and phys­i­cal vi­o­lence. Not rated. 86 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe (Rob DeWalt) THE RU­N­AWAYS Loosely based on a mem­oir by The Ru­n­aways’ lead singer, Cherie Cur­rie (played by Dakota Fan­ning), this biopic about the ’70s-era all-girl rock band that also in­cluded Joan Jett ( Twi­light’s Kris­ten Ste­wart) and Lita Ford cap­tures the essence of the band’s strug­gle to make it big be­fore im­plod­ing in 1978. Ste­wart, Fan­ning, and Michael Shan­non de­liver strong per­for­mances. Un­for­tu­nately, they are over­shad­owed by weak char­ac­ter devel­op­ment and a story rid­dled with rock-’n’-roll-movie clichés. Rated R. 109 min­utes. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Rob DeWalt) THE SE­CRET OF KELLS This an­i­mated film cen­ters on a young boy who sets out to com­plete the Book of Kells and fights Vik­ings and a ser­pent god along the way. It was nom­i­nated for a 2010 Academy Award for Best An­i­mated Fea­ture but didn’t reach Amer­i­can the­aters un­til re­cently. Not rated. 75 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed) A SIN­GLE MAN This de­but from fashion de­signer Tom Ford re­counts a day in the life of Ge­orge (Colin Firth), a lit­er­a­ture pro­fes­sor mourn­ing the death of his long­time lover (Matthew Goode). The film is metic­u­lously tai­lored and beau­ti­fully styled — some­times overly so — but it’s also heart­break­ing. Rated R. 101 min­utes. CCA Cine­math­eque, Santa Fe. (Lau­rel Glad­den)
