La Vie en Rose: Mixing legend with fact, this sprawling biopic travels from the 1920s to the 1960s with iconic French singer Edith Piaf. It's exhausting to be immersed in this life of excess and heartbreak, but Marion Cotillard's amazing performance carries you through.
Ocean's Thirteen: Danny Ocean (George Clooney) rounds up his gang of thieves (Matt Damon, Brad Pitt et al.) for a third heist, targeting casino owner Al Pacino. The movie is a winning return to form, the franchise having settled into a kind of hipster equanimity.
