Ondine (PG-13)
Beer and St. Patrick’s Day aren’t the only treasures to hail from Ireland. In this romantic drama from St. Pat’s mother land, myth meets melodrama when Syracuse, a small-town fisherman, discovers Ondine, a beautiful woman tucked among the scaly creatures in his nets. Bound by hope and water, the two fall madly love (it doesn’t hurt that Syracuse happens to be a total hottie, played by Colin Farrell, or that his co-star is his real-life lady-love), until a shadowy figure returns from Ondine’s past, and reality tears them apart. But it turns out that love has a little juice left, after all, and might just leave the mysterious Ondine, Syracuse, and his prescient daughter Annie with more future than they anticipated. (Colin Farrell [Syracuse], Alicja Bachleda [Ondine], Alison Barry [Annie])

DVD Releases for September 14

Robin Hood (PG-13)
Director Ridley Scott gives the classic tale of fighting for the little guys a modern polish in his recent horse opera. Russell Crowe stars as the fabled hero, who steals from the rich to give to the poor under the tyranny of evil Prince John. Having a love interest only supports the cause: As Maid Marion, Cate Blanchett plays the film’s resident strong female while heavyweights like Max von Sydow and William Hurt add further star-power to this pastoral epic. (Russell Crowe [Robin Longstride], Cate Blanchett [Marion Loxley])

Movie Review: Easy A

The Secret in Their Eyes (R)
It’s love, crime, and obsession, Argentina-style, when a retired criminal investigator decides to write a book based on an unsolved rape and murder case, 25 years after the fact. But as he digs deeper into the decades-old mystery — and stumbles through a minefield of unrequited love for his former supervisor — he finds himself in a legal tangle that’s far more complicated than he could have imagined, and far more dark. Secret won an Oscar last year for best foreign language film, and one glimpse at its complex, riveting story, makes it clear why. (Soledad Villamil [Irene Menendez Hastings], Ricardo Darin [Benjamin Esposito])

Movie Review: Catfish

(Untitled) (R)
Siiigghhh. To be young, pretty and untalented in New York: It’s all in a hard day’s work for this bunch of aspiring artists who’s rather analyze each other (among other things) and die in obscurity before deigning to get real jobs. In Untitled, New York’s art scene gets the satirical once-over through the story of arrogant Adrian, a music composer, and his artist brother, Josh. Things get complicated for them when a sexy art dealer named Chelsea commissions Adrian for a gallery performance. As things heat up between the pretentious pair Chels sells Josh’s work to corporate America from a back room,  undermining everyone’s too-cool ideals, and, possibly, her new relationship. (Adam Goldberg [Adrian Jacobs], Marley Shelton [Madeleine Gray], Eion Bailey [Josh Jacobs])
