Snow White & the Huntsman: Snow White (Kristen Stewart) flees the conniving queen (Charlize Theron), and the huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) bullied into tracking her does an about-face and protects her. The action consistently thrills in this ambitious, brutish, ruthlessly unromantic film.

Where Do We Go Now?: In a war-torn land, Muslim and Christian village women unite to stop the fighting. Nadine Labaki, who directs, cowrites and stars, has made a musical dramedy that's a little busy and a little silly, but it's a brave, willfully strange take on the strife in Lebanon.
