grace is McCarthy’s af­fect­ing per­for­mance as a hard­work­ing woman at the end of her rope. Rated PG-13. 102 min­utes. Re­gal DeVar­gas, Santa Fe. (Robert Ker) WHIPLASH Miles Teller plays teenage jazz drum­mer An­drew Neiman, whose dreams of be­com­ing one of the greats hinge on sur­viv­ing elite mu­sic in­struc­tor Ter­ence Fletcher (a riv­et­ing J.K. Sim­mons), the sort of teacher who’s more likely to throw a chair at his stu­dent’s head than say “please” when re­quest­ing a drum­roll. This in­die-drama by Damien Chazelle won two ma­jor awards at Sundance and com­pellingly ex­plores the ways in which the power dy­nam­ics of a men­tor­ing re­la­tion­ship can turn a teacher’s ob­ses­sion into a stu­dent’s com­pul­sion. Rated R. 107 min­utes. Re­gal DeVar­gas, Santa Fe. (Loren Bienvenu) THE THE­ORY OF EV­ERY­THING A movie about Stephen Hawk­ing ought to be burst­ing with ideas, ex­plod­ing like the Big Bang, ex­pand­ing like the uni­verse. What di­rec­tor James Marsh has come up with is a nicely crafted, watch­able, but con­ven­tion­ally struc­tured ro­man­tic biopic. It has, how­ever, one ex­tra­or­di­nary fea­ture that lifts it above the level of Lifetime en­ter­tain­ment and gives it wings. Ed­die Red­mayne is bril­liant in his trans­for­ma­tion into the gnarled, twisted phys­i­cal wreck of the Hawk­ing we know, body con­fined to a wheel­chair, voice pro­duced by a ma­chine, mind soar­ing through time and space. What we miss is the ex­cite­ment of Hawk­ing’s mind. Rated PG-13. 123 min­utes. Re­gal DeVar­gas, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards)
