Love at First Fight
He expects nothing; she prepares for the worst. He likes a good laugh. She fights, runs, swims, pushes herself. It’s a love story. Or a story of survival. Or both. Romance/Comedy, 98 min., NR.

School of Babel
School of Babel follows a year in a Paris schoolroom for children who have recently immigrated to France and triumphs in capturing the diversity of their experience. Documentary, 90 min., NR.
