'Mozart's Sister' spins a tale about Mozart's talented older sibling that is ingenious and plodding at the same time.
'Flypaper' has an entertaining premise – two gangs trying to rob the same bank at the same time – but falls down on the execution.
'The Hedgehog' is based on the internationally bestselling novel 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog' by Muriel Barbery, and is a film that starts out cynically and gradually morphs into sentimentality.

Robert Redford celebrates his birthday today, and we asked the Monitor's followers on Facebook what their favorite films were by the legendary actor and director. Here are the top five:
Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Octavia Spencer, star in ‘The Help,’ a film about black people made by white people. Perhaps inevitably, the Civil Rights-era drama set in Mississippi has been criticized for racism.
