German noblewoman Sophia Frederica (Marlene Dietrich), who would later become Catherine the Great, travels to Moscow to marry the dimwitted Grand Duke Peter (Sam Jaffe), heir to the Russian throne.

When the unstable Peter eventually ascends to the throne, Catherine plots to oust him from power.

The Science of Sleep
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A lonely everyman (Gael García Bernal) falls for his new neighbor (Charlotte Gainsbourg), and we experience his obsession in delightfully silly dream sequences. The film is a mess, but an endearing, beautiful, hopelessly honest mess supported by a brilliant pair of performances. (M.S.)

The Sea Hawk
Released: 1940
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A thinly veiled argument against America's pre-WWII isolationism, projected back into England's battle with the Spanish Armada. Brisk, brutal, bracing - perhaps the best of all the Errol Flynn swashbucklers, on a par with Robin Hood and Captain Blood.
The Sea Inside

Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Sea Of Grass
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Based on the Conrad Richter novel. At a screening of a scene where Hepburn bursts into some ultra-realistic weeping, Louis B. Mayer became incensed, claiming that her tears were flowing down the wrong bone-channels. When director Elia Kazan demurred, trying to point out her extraordinary performance, Mayer screamed: "We're the the business of making beautiful pictures of beautiful people - and, if you don't like it, get the hell out!"

The Secret in Their Eyes
Released: 2010
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A retired Buenos Aires investigator (Ricardo Darin) revisits a decades-old crime, a vicious rape and murder. Never mind the handful of flimsy plot developments -- this is a gripping depiction of repressive Argentina circa 1974. (K.B.)

Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Against the backdrop of 1964's Civil Rights Act, a white Southern girl (Dakota Fanning) and her African American maid (Jennifer Hudson) flee segregation and thrive in the home of three cultured black siblings (Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Sophie Okonedo). Fanning continues to surprise us with her acting aplomb that reveals a maturity and subtlety beyond her years, and what might have been a mere showplace for songstresses-turned-actress (count 'em) is much richer than might be expected. (M.B.)
The Secret Life of Sea Horses
Released: 2001
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Released: 2013
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A man (Ben Stiller) sets out on a global quest to save his job when he realizes it has been threatened by his chronic daydreaming. Stiller the actor wears his character's haunted nature beautifully, but Stiller the director opts for too much empty razzle-dazzle. (K.J.)
