’60s Den­ver. De­spite a lack of knowl­edge about the male-dom­i­nated busi­ness, she takes over her fam­ily’s Vir­ginia horse farm when her fa­ther’s health fails. Along with trainer Lu­cien Lau­rin ( John Malkovich), groom Ed­die Sweat ( True Blood’s Nel­san El­lis), and jockey Ron Tur­cotte (Otto Thor­warth), she raises and trains Sec­re­tar­iat, per­haps the great­est race­horse of all time. This is an old-fash­ioned fam­ily-friendly film, de­void of any­thing scan­dalous, con­tro­ver­sial, or es­pe­cially in­ter­est­ing. Rated PG. 116 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Lau­rel Glad­den) THE TOWN At its best, this crime drama with a ro­man­tic sub­plot brings to mind the taut, tense heist scenes from clas­sic film noirs. It misses the mark a bit, though, be­cause of the script, which al­lows smart peo­ple to do stupid things a lit­tle too of­ten and be­cause the ro­mance an­gle isn’t given enough at­ten­tion. Ben Af­fleck di­rects and stars as the one mem­ber of a four-man rob­bery crew who has a con­science. Jeremy Ren­ner is ex­cel­lent as the trig­ger-happy mem­ber of the gang. Rated R. 125 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott) THE SO­CIAL NET­WORK Di­rec­tor David Fincher and writer Aaron Sorkin tell the story of Face­book’s ge­n­e­sis with fire­cracker en­ergy and in­ci­sive wit. Framed around the nu­mer­ous law­suits site co-founder Mark Zucker­berg ( Jesse Eisen­berg, in a per­for­mance of un­der­stated depth) faced, the movie pro­vides a fas­ci­nat­ing look at a mis­an­thropic ge­nius who ex­pe­ri­enced a me­te­oric rise to wealth and may have re-in­vented so­ci­ety in his im­age. Rated PG-13. 121 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Robert B. Ker) YOU AGAIN High-school ri­val­ries are re­newed for both Marni (Kris­ten Bell) and her mom ( Jamie Lee Cur­tis) when Marni’s ri­val Joanna (Odette Yust­man) and her pas­sive-ag­gres­sive mom (Sigour­ney Weaver) show up in their lives again. Rated PG. 105 min­utes. Re­gal North, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed) WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS Greed is still good but not as good as it used to be in Gor­don Gekko’s re­turn. There is nice act­ing from Michael Dou­glas in a reprise of his Os­car-win­ning role and a fine cast that in­cludes Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mul­li­gan, Frank Lan­gella, and Josh Brolin; but the script doesn’t pack enough punch where it counts in the dra­mat­ics of the fi­nan­cial melt­down, and it doesn’t give Gekko enough solid ma­te­rial to re­store his for­mer rep­til­ian luster. Rated PG-13. 127 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. ( Jonathan Richards)
