A DOG’S WAY HOME In 2010, writer Wil­liam Bruce Cameron pub­lished the best­selling book A Dog’s Pur­pose, which was adapted into a movie in 2017. His fol­low-up book, A Dog’s Way Home, now gets its film adap­ta­tion. Bryce Dal­las Howard voices the in­ner mono­logue of Bella, a puppy that finds a home with an as­pir­ing med­i­cal stu­dent named Lu­cas (Jonah Hauer-King). When Bella is sep­a­rated from Lu­cas, she trav­els 400 miles to re­unite with him. Ash­ley Judd, Ed­ward James Ol­mos, and Wes Studi also star. Rated PG. 96 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14. (Not re­viewed) ON THE BA­SIS OF SEX A young Ruth Bader Gins­burg (Felic­ity Jones) is the fo­cus of this biopic, which cen­ters on an early case that helped her gain es­teem while her ca­reer was strug­gling. When a man named Charles Moritz (Chris Mulkey) fights the tax laws for a de­duc­tion for the nurse he has hired to help him care for his ag­ing mother, Gins­burg takes the case, know­ing that a vic­tory could chal­lenge many laws that as­sume that men are the heads of house­holds, while women are con­fined to do­mes­tic spa­ces and child rais­ing. Ar­mie Ham­mer plays her hus­band, Martin, and Kathy Bates plays noted attorney and ac­tivist Dorothy Kenyon. Rated PG-13. 120 min­utes. Re­gal Santa Fe 6; Vi­o­let Crown. (Not re­viewed) REPLI­CAS Keanu Reeves stars in this sci­ence-fic­tion thriller as Will Fos­ter, a neu­ro­sci­en­tist who loses his fam­ily in a car ac­ci­dent. He breaks the law to cre­ate clones of them. When the au­thor­i­ties step in and at­tempt to re­trieve or elim­i­nate the clones, Fos­ter must do whatever he can to avoid los­ing his fam­ily all over again. Rated PG-13. 107 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14. (Not re­viewed) THE UP­SIDE In this loose re­make of the 2011 hit French film The In­touch­ables, Kevin Hart plays Dell, a down-and-out man who is des­per­ate to find work. When he ap­proaches an ex­tremely wealthy quad­ri­plegic named Phil (Bryan Cranston) for a ref­er­ence, he ends up get­ting a job as his per­sonal care­taker. Al­though Dell is un­qual­i­fied for the po­si­tion, the two men de­velop an un­likely friend­ship and help each other find re­newed joy in life. Ni­cole Kid­man plays one of Phil’s as­sis­tants. Rated PG-13. 125 min­utes. Re­gal Santa Fe 6; Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown. (Not re­viewed)
