Rated PG-13. 109 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. (Not re­viewed) THE THE­ORY OF EV­ERY­THING A movie about Stephen Hawk­ing ought to be burst­ing with ideas. What di­rec­tor James Marsh has come up with is a nicely crafted, watch­able, but con­ven­tion­ally struc­tured ro­man­tic biopic. An Os­car nom­i­nee for best pic­ture, its se­cret weapon is Ed­die Red­mayne (nom­i­nee for best ac­tor), who 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. What we miss is the ex­cite­ment of Hawk­ing’s mind, soar­ing through time and space. Costar Felic­ity Jones is a nom­i­nee for best ac­tress. Rated PG-13. 123 min­utes. Re­gal DeVar­gas, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) UN­BRO­KEN An­gelina Jolie is back in the di­rec­tor’s chair to tell the true story of Louis Zam­perini ( Jack O’Con­nell), the Olympic run­ner who sur­vived a plane crash in World War II, 47 days on a life raft, and over two years of abu­sive treat­ment in Ja­panese POW camps. Rated PG-13. 137 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. (Not re­viewed) WILD In 1995, in­ex­pe­ri­enced hiker and cam­per Ch­eryl Strayed strapped on a back­pack and cov­ered 1,100 miles of the Pa­cific Crest Trail. This mov­ing, ruggedly beau­ti­ful adap­ta­tion of her mem­oir — star­ring Reese Wither­spoon (Os­car nom­i­nee for best ac­tress) — seems des­tined for sim­i­lar suc­cess. Di­rec­tor Jean-Marc Val­lée and cin­e­matog­ra­pher Yves Bélanger cap­ture scenery and set­tings with deft cam­er­a­work, and the sto­ry­telling is hon­est, vivid, and non­judg­men­tal, if some­times a bit too on the nose. Rated R. 115 min­utes. Re­gal DeVar­gas, Santa Fe. (Lau­rel Glad­den) THE WOMAN IN BLACK 2: AN­GEL OF DEATH In this follow-up to a mildly popular movie of 2012, it’s the mid­dle of World War II, and chil­dren are brought from London to a haunted man­sion where the ghostly gal of the ti­tle gets a chance to scream at them from ran­dom cor­ners of dark­ened rooms. Rated PG-13. 98 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. (Not re­viewed)
