In the Land of Women

Jonathan Kasdan's first film sounds like a piece of cheap science fiction about the last man on earth, and that's not terribly far from the truth. Adam Brody (left) plays a Los Angeles writer who moves to suburban Michigan to nurse his sick grandma (Olympia Dukakis) and winds up in a kind of love triangle with the mother (Meg Ryan) and daughter (Kristen Stewart, right) across the street. (PG-13; runs through April 26) - Wesley Morris

The Music of Seal on Ice
