Snow White and the Huntsman

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

This revisioning is dark, imaginative and actually worthwhile. Aligning closely with the Brothers Grimm version, this film follows Snow White (Kristen Stewart) as she escapes her evil stepmother queen, Ravenna (Charlize Theron). The queen, who stays young by sucking the life out of her victims, sends a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) after Snow White, and the battles ensue. This version feels less like a desperate blockbuster and more like a handmade object.

Notable Men With Lacquered Hair

The atmosphere must have been electric. Such iconic American figures, standing in the same room, breathing the same air—but hey, let’s forget the meeting of Elvis Presley and Richard Nixon for a moment. Million Dollar Quartet, the hit Broadway show based on Elvis’ other notable confab, comes to The Smith Center on June 12-17 ($24-$129). It should be fun to watch actors rip through classics such as “Hound Dog” and “Folsom Prison Blues” as they re-create the monumental 1956 recording session of Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis.
