If you want to get your Roaring ‘20s art-deco groove on as a flapper or a zoot-suited gangster, you might want to take in “Bullets Over Broadway” when it comes to town Oct. 27-Nov. 1 at the Academy of Music.

The affecting drama “Freeheld” opens Oct. 9 at the Ritz Five. The film is based on the true story (and Oscar-winning short documentary) about Laurel Hester (Julianne Moore), a dedicated detective in Seaside Heights, N.J., who must fight for justice when her legal domestic partner, Stacie (Ellen Page), is denied pension benefits after Laurel developed terminal cancer. Although domestic partnerships were legal in the state at the time, the Freeholders of Ocean County had the power to determine the pension benefits for state employees in legal same-sex partnerships. Their refusal to grant Laurel’s earned pension benefits to Stacie would likely force Stacie out of her house.

Out filmmaker Roland Emmerich’s “Stonewall,” opening at the Ritz East theatre Sept. 25, is more ambitious than good. In fact, at times it is not even particularly good, but downright cringe-inducing.
