Friday’s openings redux: Famine and a free climb

It'll be a big week for movies. Other than those already announced, here is the final lineup:

"Black '47": An Irish man serving with the British army leaves his post to return home during the Great Irish Famine of 1845-49.

"Colette": Keira Knightley plays the French writer who, at the beginning of her career, wrote books under her husband's name. Guess who wasn't happy when she wanted the credit for herself?

"Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer": A faith-based look at the trial of a Philadelphia abortion doctor.

"Free Solo": A documentary look at Alex Honnold's untethered solo climb of Yosemite's 3,000-foot peak El Capitan.

And at AMC River Park Square, a re-release of 2015's "Cinderella," while the Magic Lantern will open second-run showings of "BlackkKlansman" and "The Wife."

That's the lot. So go, see a movie. And enjoy.
