The new Star Wars prequel dominates multiplexes for Memorial Day weekend, but a variety of intriguing counter-programming options come to the Salt Lake Film Society screens.

The Rider (pictured) finds a powerful tale of modern masculinity somewhere between fiction and documentary.

MaryAnn Johanson praises 1945 for its startling, still-relevant tale of reckoning with helping evil to flourish.

Eric D. Snider says Claire Denis' Let the Sunshine In offers a spellbinding central performance by Juliette Binoche.

In this week's feature review, the prequel adventure Solo: A Star Wars Story keeps the fans happy with plenty of nudging references to a character's 40-year history.
