Three of America's finest actresses, Jane Fon-I
da, Anne Bancroft, and Meg Tilly are the leads in
this psychological quasi-mystery. A young nun
(Tilly) is found in a room with a strangled newborn
infant, presumably hers, but claims that a miracle
has occurred. Fonda is an inquiring psychologist
who squares off against the convent's Mother
Superior (Bancroft). At the Campus Theater, 1214 -
S. University, 6684416.
A Speilberg-presented, Robert Zemeckis-
directed fantasy about a high-school student who
rides a souped-up DeLorean into the '50s, and is
forced to insure his own existence by playing mat-
chmaker for his parents. A little too cute, but well
handled. At the State Theatre, 231S. State, 6624264;
and the Wayside, 3020 Washtenaw, 4341782.
Sword and sorcery-filled animated feature from
Disney. Although aimed at restoring Disney to its
former reputation, the film wallows in its own
mediocrity. At the Movies at Briarwood, Briar-
wood Mall, 769-8780.
Sting and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance) don't
quite make this monster movie work. At the Fox
Village Theatre, 375 N. Maple, 769-1300.

An Austalian comedy about a soft drink
executive. At the Ann Arbor Theatre, 210S. Fifth,
Gentle post-Speilbergian fantasy about
benevolent aliens, children, and geriatrics. Direc-
ted by Ron Howard (Splash). At the Movies at
Briarwood, Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
Arnold Swarzenegger's performance as The
Terminator was all in good fun, but this latest ef-
fort from Mr. Muscle looks a little too much like
Rambo. A retired mercenary is forced back into
action when his daughter is kidnapped. At the Fox
Village Theatre, 375 N. Maple, 769-1300.
Peter O'Toole plays an eccentric genius closing
in on the greatest discovery of all time. Conflict:
The University doesn't want him to. Also stars
Mariel Hemingway. At the State Theatre, 231 S.
State, 662-6264.
Big Bird plays a golden fowl who gets lost wan-
dering away from Sesame Street. Includes a clever
scene where Big Bird finds himself (herself?) in
the same precarious field that Cary Grant en-
countered in North-by-Northwest. Cameos by
Snuful-Upagus. From the Children's television
Workshop. At the Fox Village Theatre, 375 N.
Maple, 769-1300.

Vampire movie with brains and scares. Starring
Chris Saradon and Roddy McDowell. At the Movies
at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
A marvelously imaginative comedy about an'
African bushman who mistakes a Coke bottle that
falls from an airplane for a dropped trinket of the
gods and decides to return it. The laughs are pure'
slapstick, but ingenious and relentless. A cult
classic and deservedly so. Now approaching its fir-
st year of running. At the Movies at Briarwood,
Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.'
This sequel to the pulp classic, The Hills Have
Eyes, promises all that its predecessors - and
then some. Starring once again the bald guy in dire
need of orthodontia, catch this one at The State
Theater, 231S. State, 6624264.
No information available at press time. At the
State Theatre, 321S. State, 6626264.
A murder-mystery thriller that involves a
savage slaying, a man wrongly accused of the
murder, a femal assistant district attorney, and of
course, a romantic subplot. Stars Glenn Close and
Jeff Bridges. At the Movies at Briarwood, Briar-
wood Mall, 769-8780.
William Hurt supplies the emotional power. This
film adaptation is faithful to the dialogue of
Manuel Puig's book, but lacks some of its heart.
Recommended nonetheless. At the Ann Arbor
Theatre, 210 S. Fifth, 761-9700.

A heroic Englishwoman is haunted by memories
of the passion and idealism of her experience as a
fighter in the French Resistence. At the Movies at
Briarwood, Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
Big budget return of the western by Lawrence
Kasdan (The Big Chill). Kasdan manages to juggle
a handful of characters with highly entertaining
results. At the Fox Village Theatre, 375 N. Maple,
Seven young friends share their fantasies at a
D.C. bar. Call it The Little Chill. Stars Rob Lowe,.
Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson. At the Movies in Briar-
wood, Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.

disruptive to his social schedule. At the Wayside,
3090 Washtenaw, 434-1782.
Tom Hanks and John Candy star in this comedy
about idealism and life in the Peace Corps.
Idealism and life? Well, okay, the commentary is
as subtle as it is farcical, but the movie combines
the best of all worlds into a slapstick adventure.
The approach is as innovative as it is funny. At the
Fox Village Theater, 375 N. Maple, 769-1300.
Man meets virus thriller. Mutates drama. At the
Fox Village Theatre, 375 N. Maple, 769-1300.
