Chasing Mavericks

(PG) ★★★☆☆

This film is about surfing, the legendary and mysterious secret break, the Mavericks, off the coast of Northern California, and teenage Jay Moriarty who became famous there. Jay (Jonny Weston) gets the surfing bug from his next-door neighbor, Frosty (Gerard Butler). Jay lionizes Frosty and stows away when Frosty sneaks off to Mavericks, of which only a quartet of veteran surfers are aware. Frosty mentors the kid, training him to survive and ride the break. It’s an entertaining story with awe-inspiring surf footage.

Glenda Glen Ross

Inside Theatre7, a new production of David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Glengarry Glen Ross is being rehearsed. Actors and crew are mired in the messy yet essential business of blocking their movements and positions. It’s tricky, since the venue is, to put it politely, intimate. Audience members must exit stage left (there’s no stage right), along with the busily performing cast, to access the restroom. The intense proximity heightens the rough-and-rumble, testosterone-fueled atmosphere of cutthroat real estate agents in Chicago.
