In the Pat Barker novel “Border Crossing,” on which it’s based, he rescues a young man from suicide, then learns that years earlier he had testified against him as an expert witness. Julia Stiles also stars.
MANIFESTO Those who can’t get enough of Cate Blanchett will find her here playing 13 roles.

The film was shown in installation form at the Park Avenue Armory in December and January before heading to Sundance.

HOUNDS OF LOVE It’s not a tribute to the Kate Bush album of the same title, but an Australian thriller about a young woman (Ashleigh Cummings) who’s abducted by a serial killer couple (Emma Booth and Stephen Curry). The news media in Perth have noted similarities between the plot and a real-life case.
KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD After two revisionist takes on Sherlock Holmes, the director Guy Ritchie aims to show off the hipper side of King Arthur, a character whose last major reboot was in a 2004 Antoine Fuqua film.

PARIS CAN WAIT Does anyone in the Coppola family not make films? Eleanor Coppola (the wife of Francis Ford Coppola) has directed before — she was one of the filmmakers behind the documentary “Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse,” which went behind the scenes of “Apocalypse Now.” But this is her first fiction feature, which she also wrote. Diane Lane, playing the wife of a Hollywood producer (Alec Baldwin), finds herself rejuvenated by a car trip to France.
SNATCHED Pairing Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer in the same comedy is one of those brilliant comic ideas that just needed to happen. They play a bickering mother and daughter who bond after being kidnapped on a tropical vacation. The screenwriter Katie Dippold (“The Heat”) supplied the banter; Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) directs.
STEFAN ZWEIG: FAREWELL TO EUROPE The work of the Austrian writer Stefan Zweig has inspired many movies (including “Letter From an Unknown Woman” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel”).

TRACKTOWN In case you thought world-class athletes were insufficiently talented, Alexi Pappas, an American-born runner who represented Greece at the 2016 Olympics, wrote and stars in this story of a long-distance runner who falls for a boy at the bakery while she is sidelined with an injury. She also directs, with Jeremy Teicher.

Michael Caton-Jones (“Rob Roy”) directs.
