MovieDescription
Life of Pi 3D
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
In this adaptation of Yann Martel’s novel, a zookeeper’s son (Suraj Sharma) gets stranded on a lifeboat with a hungry tiger. Though the film’s musings about faith may prove vexing, director Ang Lee serves up some of the most breathtaking images you’ll see at the movies this year. (S.R.)

Angelina Jolie's got one week left
Life With Father
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Clarence Day's childhood, taken from the long-running Lindsay Crouse comedy. Powell is miscast, but the film is likable.
Lifeboat
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Eight American passengers on a World War II freighter are plunged into a lifeboat when a German U-boat sinks them. The only man on board who can navigate and steer them to safety is the ninth passenger: the nazi captain of the U-boat that sank them (his ship was also destroyed in the battle). Amiable, glib and supremely competent, the Nazi takes control and steers them through the danger-laden waters. But where, actually, is he steering them to...? A wartime fable of imperiled democracy, this is another Alfred Hitchcock's virtuoso technical feats.

Lightning Strikes Twice

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Wrongfully accused of his wife's murder, a man returns to his arid Southwestern homeland; he finds new loves, old hates and the real killer. A weird mixture of soap opera and thriller, passionately directed by Vidor.
Like Crazy
Released: 2011
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
A young American (Felicity Jones) and a young Brit (Anton Yelchin) fall in love, but visa woes keep them apart. The actors and the design are attractive, but this is a bit of a slog. (K.B.)

Lilies Of The Field
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Ebullient black jack-of-all-trades helps immigrant nuns build a chapel in the Southwest. Frank Capra once said he wished he'd made this movie himself.
Lilith
Released: 1964
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Robert Rossen was dying while he directed this strange, lyrical, lovely and disturbing tale - a romance set in an asylum; a romance between the keeper and the kept. It's also a frightening study of mental and moral disintegration, and it has an atmosphere of eerie tranquility and fatalism almost unique in American cinema. A failure in America, it has been regarded as a masterpiece in Europe since its first appearance.

Limelight
Released: 1952
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Charlie Chaplin's last American testament (he was virtually exiled before its release) the wistful, highly personal, bitterly poignant tale of an aging London street entertainer and clown who befriends a suicidal ballerina, guides her toward life, stages one last music-hall performance. This last scene is a classic (it includes the legendary comedy musical duet between Chaplin on the fiddle and Buster Keaton at the piano), and the film as a whole has the simple serenity of a man facing his own impermanence, musing on the frailty and odd beauty of the past and the uncertainty ahead.
Limitless
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
After a down-on-his-luck author (Bradley Cooper) ingests a pill that streamlines his brain, he finishes his stillborn novel and makes moves to game Wall Street. Cunningly assembled, this is an anti-laziness polemic for a society that relies more and more on quick fixes. (M.S.)
Lincoln
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
President Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis) tries to garner support for the 13th amendment (the abolition of slavery) as political factions fight for their own agendas. Day-Lewis’ stellar performance lights up the screen, as does a lively screenplay by Tony Kushner (Angels in America). (S.R.)

Lions for Lambs
Released: 2007
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Robert Redford’s drama presents three interrelated storylines having to do with our commitment to the War on Terror, starring Tom Cruise as a Republican senator who’s come up with “A New Plan” and Meryl Streep as a veteran broadcast journalist who’s seen it all before. Although the movie’s didactic at times, the dialogue’s sharp and the acting’s first-rate. (K.W.)
Lisbon Story
Released: 1994
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Wim Wenders, whom the City of Lisbon commissioned to make this cinematic postcard, allows the city to discover him.

Little Big Man
Released: 1970
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A great picaresque Western from the Thomas Berger novel about the lone survivor of the massacre of the Little Big Horn. A savage, heart-tearing tale of life among the whites and life among the Indians, of a majestic civilization and its slaughter and slow decay. (M.W.)
