NEW YORK. Viewers may be misled by the title of director and co-writer Abel Ferrara’s historical drama “Padre Pio” (Gravitas). The film is less a profile of the titular saint, played passionately by Shia LaBeouf, than a portrait of San Giovanni Rotondo, the Apulian town of his Capuchin monastery, in the period immediately after World War I.

COLORADO SPRINGS. The 200 year-old Cristo Crucificando, also known as the Tilley Cross, soon will be shipped back home to Mexico.

The crucifix, presently on display in the Colorado College Fine Arts Center (FAC) in Colorado Springs, is believed to have once hung in a local chapel or village church in the Queretaro region, located in the north-central area of Mexico. The cross earned its nickname from the man who bought the piece. His daughter, Eve Tilley-Chavez, is president of the Pikes Peak Arts Council.

Using technology not available in the waning days of the Cold War, Marshall and his team serve up a charming fresh take on the timeless story.

John Mulderig 0 77 Article rating: 5.0

NEW YORK. Chris Pratt reprises his starring role as Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” (PG-13, Disney), and writer-director James Gunn returns to helm the project. But there’s a somber tone to long patches of this wrap-up of Gunn’s trilogy, which also lacks the verve that characterized its predecessors.
