Mon Oncle Antoine
Canadian writer/director Claude Jutra's visually precious and dramatically conventional 1971 movie follows 15-year-old Benoit (Jacques Gagnon) in a rural 1940s Quebecois mining town. He works at his uncle Antoine's (Jean Duceppe) general store, where Benoit overhears town gossip, develops an interest in the female breast, and learns those inevitable lessons about sex, class, and betrayal. At the Enoch Pratt Free Library's Wheeler Auditorium Nov. 14 at 10:15 a.m.

Director Michael Arias' 2006 anime--based on Taiyo Matsumoto's serial manga title of the same name--follows two street kids who decide to take on the yakuza that are trying to take over their town. At the Enoch Pratt Free Library's Wheeler Auditorium Nov. 14 at 2 p.m.

Director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) goes to the apocalyptic well once again with this FX-rich actioner about a global calamity. Something awful happens, things go boom, people try to survive. Opens Nov. 13.
