Inferno PG-13

Tom Hanks portrays Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon in the third film adapted from the Dan Brown series of novels. This time, Langdon awakens in a hospital with no memory of recent events, but it isn’t long before he learns that only he can prevent a terrible plague from being unleashed. To save mankind, Langdon must solve a demonic riddle. Clues can be found in Florence and Venice, Italy, where Langdon is pulled into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways and futuristic science—all linked to Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy. Once again directed by Ron Howard, this adaptation is slavishly faithful to its source, brimming with stunning visuals and incoherent plot lines. (Lisa Miller)

 

A Letter to Three Wives Not Rated

Gracious upper-middle-class homes provide the stage for refined cattiness along with romantic and social anxiety in this sophisticated 1949 comedy by director Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve). The Oscar winner touched everything from the advertising industry’s assault on the intellect to the class-crossing lure of lust and money. Ann Sothern, Linda Darnell and Jeanne Crain play the wives, with fine supporting performances from Thelma Ritter and (the then little-known) Kirk Douglas. (David Luhrssen)
