• Limitless

Once more with feeling: Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right) stars as the title character in Jane Eyre, the umpteenth remake of Charlotte Bronte’s classic novel and the best one I’ve seen for sure. It’s the subject of this week’s long review. Also in the new issue are Critic’s Choice boxes for Certified Copy, the latest by Abbas Kiarostami; Limitless, a new thriller by Neil Burger (The Lucky Ones, The Illusionist); and Paul, a sci-fi comedy from the guys who brought you Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

Beginning Saturday at 11:30 AM the Music Box presents the fifth annual Sci-Fi Spectacular, a marathon of sci-fi flicks with personal appearances by directors Mick Garris (Critters 2: The Main Course) and Chuck Russell (The Blob). And Gene Siskel Film Center enters week three of its annual European Union Film Festival, with screenings of The Arbor, a documentary about the young, doomed English playwright Andrea Dunbar; The First Beautiful Thing, an Italian drama about a man’s troubled relationship with his free-spirited mother; Letters to Father Jacob, in which a lifer gets assigned to assist a blind priest in answering letters from troubled souls; Nenette, a documentary about a 40-year-old orangutan at a Paris menagerie; Le Quattro Volte, an Italian art film about death and generation; and the paired documentaries Rabbit a la Berlin and The Invisible Frame, both offbeat looks at the legacy of the Berlin Wall.
