City will remember 9/11 attacks at ceremony PROCESSIONS TO CONVERGE ON CIVIC CENTER DURING ART AND WINE FESTIVAL By Daniel DeBolt

I

n a ceremony set for Sunday morning during the Art and Wine festival, the city is set to acknowledge the 10th anniversary of the thousands of deaths that resulted from the attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

At 11 a.m. Sunday, two processions will converge on the Civic Center plaza on Castro Street, where city officials, police, firefighters and local service clubs will honor the 3,000 people who died the day the twin towers fell, and the 343 firefighters and 60 police officers who responded to the disaster and lost their

lives. It was the largest single loss of firefighters in United States history. At 10 a.m. police will observe a national moment of silence on their radios, following a Congressional resolution that “calls upon all of the people and See 9/11, page 15

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Janelle Eastman

How did 9/11 impact your outlook on life? “My thoughts on Sept. 11th are that it’s not the event itself that changed us, it was the response, the security apparatus that rose up, and the wars,” Shane Beasley, Mountain View

“9/11 definitely had its impact, I think, in realizing that America was a lot less protected than it thought it was and the importance of a strong defense that was obvious. Personally, I think people realized that it made life a little more precious in a lot of ways.”

ARREST IN U-HAUL FIRES Police have arrested a Palo Alto man they believe is responsible for setting fire to a number of rental trucks in a local U-Haul lot in July, said a spokeswoman with the Mountain View Police Department. The man, 48-year-old Jesse Jakubik, was seen shortly after midnight on Sept.1 sneaking through a hole in the fence out of the U-Haul lot, located at 62 W. El Camino Real, said Liz Wylie, public information officer for Mountain View police. Sgt. Tony Vieyra spotted Jakubik leaving the U-Haul property, followed him and arrested him near his truck, which was parked on Highway 237. Officers discovered four fivegallon containers filled with gasoline and 13 empty five-gallon containers in the bed of Jakubik’s truck, Wylie said. A siphon was found still inserted in one of the rental trucks parked on the U-Haul lot. Jakubik was arrested for prowling on private property, possession of stolen property and violating his probation, Wylie said. Jakubik had been recently

convicted of drug-related charges, she said. Just before midnight on July 20, a fire burned eight trucks on the same U-Haul lot, Wylie said. Prior to the fire, the owners of the Mountain View U-Haul told police that someone had been sneaking into the lot on a regular basis and siphoning gasoline out of their trucks. The blaze prompted the evacuation of several nearby residences, due to fire’s proximity to a large propane tank on the lot. After reviewing security footage from the U-Haul lot, investigators said that Jakubik resembled a man captured by cameras on the night of the fire, Wylie said, and his jacket resembled that of the man seen in that security footage. He was charged with burglary and unlawfully starting the fire, a charge that differs from arson. In order to be considered arson, it must be proven that the guilty party set the fire intentionally and with malicious intent. Unlawfully starting a fire means that the fire was started due to recklessness. Jakubik was booked into county jail, Wylie said.

SAVING HANGAR ONE On Tuesday the southern doors of Hangar One at Moffett Field were completely stripped of siding layered in asbestos, lead and PCBs, providing a view of the structure that hasn’t been seen since the 1930s.

Advocate for senior citizens dies at 108 By Andrea Gemmet

L

ouise Miner, an 80-year Mountain View resident who helped launch many of the city’s senior programs, died Aug. 30, one month after celebrating her 108th birthday. A memorial service for Miner is set for 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17, at the First Presbyterian Church, 1667 Miramonte

Ave., Mountain View. Miner was actively involved at First Presbyterian, and her creation of the church’s Fifty/Fifty Club for seniors in 1957 was a springboard for the city’s senior programs, said her son, John Miner. She was a member and director of the volunteer-led Mountain View Senior Citizens Club that organized trips and events to complement the city’s senior programming, said the city’s recre-

ation supervisor. Born in 1903, she met her future husband, Nagel Miner, in 1921 during their senior year at Santa Cruz High School. The couple married in 1926. Miner worked as Louise Miner a teacher at Highway Elementary School and the Dana Street School in Mountain View through the years of the Great Depression

Quiet renaissance in OMV HOME TOUR OFFERS PEEK AT RECENT REMODELS AND LANDSCAPES By Carol Blitzer

O

ld Mountain View has been undergoing a quiet, subtle evolution since many of the homes were built in the late 1940s. Slowly the little bungalows in the heart of town are becoming modernized and updated. Five homes that were recently remodeled will be on tour during the first Mountain View Educational Foundation (MVEF) home

tour on Sept. 17, a fundraiser that funnels money into K-8 programs in art, music, science and afterschool sports in the Mountain View Whisman School District. Included on the tour is the home of Lisa Parramore and her husband Svein Olslund, who bought their Old Mountain View bungalow in 2000. In two stages, in 2003 and 2009, they’ve expanded their 1,200-square-foot home to about 2,300 square feet, maximizing their use of space on

a 5,500-square-foot lot. First they added a master suite, with a deep Japanese soaking tub, with slate surround and flooring and shoji screen doors. Parramore, a landscape designer and co-author of “Living With Japanese Gardens,” lived in Japan 20 years ago, just after college. Originally from North Carolina, she was excited by Japan’s architecture — and ultimately incorporated many Japanese details while updating

fter two years of not having a mayor’s award, Mayor Jac Siegel has resurrected it and is seeking nominations for outstanding people, groups and businesses in the city that deserve recognition. In order to make it more practical, Siegel said he spent considerable time figuring out how to cut the time and expense of conducting the event, which the previous two mayors passed on during the recession. “I went through with help of staff (and) streamlined the heck out of it,” Siegel said. Sigel said that what used to cost $5,000 to $6,000 and require several meetings will now cost only $1,000 and one meeting. “We are down to one meeting now with five people on a committee,” Siegel said. “In two or three hours we’re going to decide right there.” The award categories are not set in stone, and the committee may create categories as needed in order to recognize five to 10 award winners. Potential categories include “Leadership, Volunteerism, Community Involvement, and Commitment to the betterment of Mountain View.” Mountain View employees are not eligible for awards unless they are residents as well, but they may make nominations. A nomination form with instructions is available on the city website at mountainview.gov under announcements or at the library, City Hall, Community Center, Chamber of Commerce and the Senior Center.

Shoji screens cover NanaWall accordion doors leading to the garden. “Having a garden viewable from inside is a very Japanese approach to residential design,” she said, adding “I think it makes the most of a small lot.” Out the door one steps onto an engawa, a narrow wooden walkway that connects the indoors and outdoors, ParSee HOUSE TOUR, page 8 SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 ■ MOUNTAIN VIEW VOICE ■

Parramore said. Another common Japanese concept is to stagger elements, whether they are shelves in the kitchen, windows in the living room or stepping stones outside. Even the Douglas fir trusses in the vaulted great-room ceiling are slightly asymmetrical. The faceted glass in the front door mimics a Japanese split curtain. A split curtain replaces a storage-cabinet door in a hallway. Up the stairway, one can see a dramatic Japanese wedding kimono hanging on the wall, just above a window that lets light flow through to the hallway beyond.

JOHNSON

Continued from page 1

Romero was arrested later in Mountain View. Authorities would not name the suspected killer. Mendoza said he could have tried to prosecute Talarico, but decided to hold off in hopes of building a better case. Exactly why Johnson was shot remains a mystery. Mendoza said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waiting for someone to â&#x20AC;&#x153;tell us exactly what happened and why.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a case like this I would love to give closure to the family and hold who did this responsible,â&#x20AC;? Mendoza said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jeffrey was a

young man, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deserve to die. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the family thinks about it all the time. Jeffrey is not forgotten.â&#x20AC;? Mendoza says he will never forget the case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the only homicide Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had that I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to close out and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at my job 26 years.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have some evidence that we can corroborate if someone comes forward,â&#x20AC;? Mendoza said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hopeful it will happen.â&#x20AC;? Anyone with information about the case can reach Mountain View police at (650) 903-6344.

CALTRAIN

Continued from page 1

year contract â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 2013 fiscal year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is for $59.5 million, within the projected Caltrain operating and capital budgets, according to the Caltrain statement. Subsequent contract amounts are subject to annual negotiations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that the familiar faces of those running the trains will remain the same; federal regulations provide job protections for current employees. The major components of Caltrainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract include the daily staffing and operations

of trains, as well as inspection and maintenance of tracks, the passenger-rail fleet, rights of way, structures, the signaling and communication network, stations and other facilities. As part of the contract, Caltrain will require TransitAmerica to achieve certain performance standards around management, safety, on-time performance, and other critical tasks prior to receiving its full management fee, according to Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement. Amtrak has operated Caltrain for more than 20 years. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Palo Alto Online staff

New director for KMVT Shelley Wolfe will take over as the new executive director of KMVT Channel 15, the board of directors announced on Wednesday, Sept. 7. Wolfe replaces Brian Szabo, who announced in May his plans to retire after six years at the helm of the nonprofit community access television station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Wolfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) deep and broad experience at both community access stations and in business development is the ideal match for leading KMVT through its exciting next phase as the community media center for Silicon Valley,â&#x20AC;? said Alicia Crank, head of the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s search committee, in a statement. Wolfe has seven yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience as executive director at community access TV stations, including Pacifica Community Television. Most recently, she headed up Fitchburg Access Television in Mas-

sachusetts. Wolfe also has held positions in business and sales management at various record and music companies, and founded a successful event management company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look forward to educating local businesses and non-profit organizations on how public access can benefit their organizations through the power of media,â&#x20AC;? said Wolfe in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the creative side â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in addition to providing innovative staff-produced and community access programming and training â&#x20AC;&#x201D; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re continuing as one of the lead production houses of educational, documentary, and promotional videos for non-profits in the Bay Area.â&#x20AC;?

CHP reports rise in DUIs The California Highway Patrol has reported more DUIs over the Labor Day weekend compared to last year, but fewer fatalities this year in the Bay Area. In the Bay Area CHP jurisdiction, there were 258 DUI arrests compared to 252 suspected drunken drivers last year. In 2010 the Labor Day holiday weekend saw two fatalities compared to one fatal collision this year, according to CHP reports. Agencies from Santa Clara County reported 439 arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Last year, 385 people were arrested, officials said.

In San Mateo County, holiday weekend enforcement agencies reported 211 DUI arrests, compared to 224 arrests last year over the same Friday-through-Mondaynight period, officials said. Statewide DUI arrests and fatalities were up over the long weekend. Twenty-two people were killed in CHP jurisdictions, compared to 16 in 2010. This year, 19 of the people killed were not wearing seatbelts. One motorcyclist was killed, as was a pedestrian, CHP officials said. The CHP said they continue to advise all drivers to buckle up, obey all speed laws and always have a designated driver.

In her 80 years as a member of First Presbyterian, she held a number of lay positions, and served as choir director during the 1950s, her family said. She encouraged attendance and provided rides to services, leading a number of people to credit Miner with bringing them into the church, her son said. She had a love of music, and wrote songs and poetry, and enjoyed painting, her family said. In 1958, when her husband stepped down as president of Golden Gate University and became the dean of foreign studies, Miner became involved in organizing activities, trips and parties for the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreign students, her family said. The couple became the â&#x20AC;&#x153;American parentsâ&#x20AC;? for many foreign students, and spent their retirement years traveling the world to visit former students and their families. In 1986, she and her husband received Mountain Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Service Award in recognition of their work on behalf of senior citizens, her son said. The couple worked as a team throughout their 70-plus-year marriage, supporting each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities and actively working to promote housing and nutritional programs for seniors, her family said. In 1997, she was preceded in death by her husband, Nagel Miner. She is survived by their three children, Barbara, Mary and John; 11 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren.

Ambitious plans to save the owls

t is heartening to see support growing for the dwindling population of burrowing owls at Shoreline Park. Despite extraordinary efforts by the city and the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, a handful of remaining birds at Shoreline are just hanging on. There is some cause for hope after biologists determined that three pairs of owls hatched 10 chicks this year. This is good news, although far fewer than the 22 chicks hatched in 2003. The owls face numerous challenges to survive at Shoreline, including loss of habitat and even an ongoing battle with photographers and hikers who get too close to their nests. Defending against the intruders can cause the birds to jump and fly into view of the hawks who prey on them. But luckily the owls have many friends who are working on their behalf, including Phil Higgins, a city biologist who manages the owls’ habitat at Shoreline. He lets visitors know if they are closer than the 250-foot buffer to make the owls comfortable. Harassing or killing an owl is a serious crime that can carry a fine of up to $15,000 and up to six months in jail. Besides Higgins, the Audubon Society has continued its strong support of maintaining the burrowing owls, which have vanished from most of the county except for Shoreline Park, Moffett Field and Alviso. There are numerous projects underway to help the owls, including a city plan to create more habitat around the golf course and perhaps beginning a supplemental feeding program. There is also hope that a plan endorsed by the Audubon Society will be approved soon. It would involve moving two pairs from the county to a special raptor breeding facility in Idaho, then bringing the eggs back and placing them in nests at Shoreline, a feasible plan because experts say the owls are not particular about whose eggs they hatch. But the plan must be approved by the state Department of Fish and Game, which has been sitting on the proposal for over a year. Audubon officials hope that will change when Assemblyman Paul Fong, who recently toured Shoreline’s owl habitat, gets involved. In a statement, Fong said he is “looking into what can be done to keep the burrowing owl population strong at Shoreline and other parts of Santa Clara County.” The city is also looking at ways to decrease the impact of its development plans at Shoreline, which include a soccer and baseball fields south of the Shoreline Golf Links. Part of the solution will add vegetation, brush and rocks to the golf course that is designed to make good hunting grounds for owls looking for rodents. Owls have been seen nesting around the course recently. If the city can continue to protect some open space at Shoreline, and the owls get a boost from the remote hatching program, it should help the population stabilize in the coming years. The city and the Audubon Society have shown a remarkable commitment to keep Shoreline’s owl population healthy. It is a challenge but one that we’re sure most Mountain View citizens are happy to support.

SUPPORT FOR BREASTFEEDING AT EL CAMINO HOSPITAL As a midwife, it has been especially painful that El Camino Hospital used to have a reputation as the worst hospital on the Peninsula when it came to support for mothers who were breastfeeding. Over the last few years, I have been hearing that mother/baby advocates were working really hard to improve their policies and practices. Indeed, I had an

experience recently where one of my clients needed to be hospitalized at El Camino, and they were outstanding in their extraordinary support for keeping her breastfeeding baby with her. Thank you to all the fine people who have worked to bring this about, especially Dr. Anjali Sahai and the great ER nurse who voiced such strong support for the baby to keep breastfeeding. (Sorry. I didn’t get his name.) Ronnie Falcao Vincent Drive

VOICES FROM THE COMMUNITY

Here’s what they’re saying on Town Square ELECTRONICA FESTIVAL IS A FIRST FOR MOUNTAIN VIEW Posted by James, a resident of the Whisman Station I really love electronic music and I think there’s a lot more to it than a bunch of kids raving on drugs. It can trace its roots all the way back to the early electronic music of the ‘70s when bands like Tangerine Dream and Kraftwerk merged with the dance music of the same period. I particularly like some of the music by “The Crystal Method” and “Kaskade,” both of whom will be performing Sept. 3. I think I might be too old to attend the event though. Posted by Dr. Rock, a resident of the Cuesta Park neighborhood And now that it (Electronic Festival) has passed without any horrific world ending cascade down into the evil world of drugs and debauchery that was predicted by

some posters, we can see who the silly Chicken Littles are in our community. I love how popular music and the ‘scene’ it produces still causes the older generations to look at it with trepidation. The mass hysteria caused by Elvis’s swiveling hips and the fear of drug-crazed zombie kids wandering around is the same. The kids are all right. Long live rock and roll! Posted by Peter, a resident of the Cuesta Park neighborhood Dr. Rock: Nobody is predicting a world ending here. You’re setting up a straw man argument. We’re just opposed to the use of drug use in the city limits that cause users long term damage in terms of health, and quality of life and also driving under the influence. If you are comparing Elvis with DJ’s it seems your thinking has been affected. I’m a young person speaking so your argument is an insult to older as well as younger people.

hwack! A heavy wooden rolling pin, wielded by Leah Jacobs, landed squarely on what was, a few seconds prior, the smooth, matte surface of a stick of butter. Thwack! Now with a concave indentation, the butter was clearly on the losing end of Jacobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; assault. Soon the stick would become a broad, flat sheet, suitable for placing on top of a sheet of butter-less pastry dough to begin creating layers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the noisiest thing I do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the most violent,â&#x20AC;? Jacobs said on a recent Friday morning.

Some may find it ironic that the creation of delicately flaky edibles, such as the croissants currently taking shape, requires such brute force. But then, some may also find it surprising that Jacobs is turning out her croissants, brioches, beignets, galettes and macarons not at a fancy downtown bakery but rather at Mountain Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shoreline Park. Come again? Known more for windsurfing lessons and families in paddle boats, Shoreline Park also is home to the Lakeside Cafe, where Jacobs works. Both the

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in foil pan. Add the onion, carrot and celery. Cook until the vegetables soften, about 10 minutes then drain the oil. 3. Meanwhile, heat the other 4 tablespoons of olive oil in a foil pan. Dredge the veal shanks in the ďŹ&#x201A;our, coating on all sides and shake off the excess ďŹ&#x201A;our. When the oil is hot, slip in the shanks and brown them on all sides. This should take about 6-7 minutes per side. Remove the veal shanks and place them in the ďŹ rst pan on top of the cooked vegetables. 4. Add the wine, butter, chicken broth, tomatoes, pepper and salt to the pot. The liquid should come at least two thirds of the way to the top of the shanks. If it does not, add more broth. 5. Cover the pan and place it in the oven. Cook for about 2 hours, turning and basting every 30 minutes, until the meat is very tender. 6. Transfer the Ossobuco to a warm plate and carefully remove the strings. To serve place Ossobuco on a plate with Risotto Milanese, or Pastina pasta in herbed olive oil and garlic. SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 â&#x2013;  MOUNTAIN VIEW VOICE â&#x2013;

8FFLFOE over, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changed the menu and found new suppliers for ingredients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bringing in Chef Leah to work with me and to create this vision is important to me.â&#x20AC;? Jacobs, who was hired in April, hails from Boston, graduated from the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts and formerly worked at the organic-leaning Henriettaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Table in the Charles Hotel. She now lives in Palo Alto. At the Lakeside Cafe, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been able to spread her creative wings, she said. In addition to producing the daily â&#x20AC;&#x153;staplesâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; croissants (plain and chocolate), scones (cherry almond and chocolate orange), muffins (blueberry and pecan-sourcream) and cinnamon buns â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she follows her whim. Diners at the cafe might also find fresh strawberry cheesecake, delicate creme brulee, slices of apple pie or the decadent chocolate-croissant bread pudding in the cafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glass cases. She has her sights on introducing patrons to lamingtons, a bite-size Australian treat made of white cake coated in chocolate and coconut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re delicious,â&#x20AC;? she said. Her creativity extends to catering, which Ferrari said makes up more than one third of the cafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business. In mid-August, Jacobs helped cater a 1,600 guest, carnival-themed Google event, turning out 500 candied apples and 500 cupcakes decorated in Google colors. To prepare for the assignment, she experimented over the weekend at her house, making batches of the apples to test the caramel coating, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it so hard that people canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bite through it. But you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it so soft that the caramel falls off,â&#x20AC;? she said. Then she and an assistant pulled an all-nighter, working from 7 p.m. till noon the next day to meet the deadline. But those hours hardly faze her. Like Ferrari, pastries are a personal passion of Jacobs, who

grew up baking chocolate cakes. She started a career in hightech, coordinating engineers and suppliers. But on weekends and weeknights, she would make wedding cakes and cupcakes for parties. She soon admitted the split life wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doing something just for the money is really not worth it in the long run,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like I was slowly dying.â&#x20AC;? So she took the plunge, enrolling in the Cambridge School and studying under a master French pastry chef Delphin Gomes and chef Sharon Donovan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love being able to produce something that is beautiful. Even now when I make a perfect croissant, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still, like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; every single time,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just get excited by that.â&#x20AC;? Ferrari, who occasionally joins Jacobs in the kitchen, plans to overhaul the cafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily menus. She envisions creating dishes around seasonal ingredients. Plus, being an avid traveler who

Since 1945 $)"3$0"-#30*-&3

has visited more unusual destinations such as India and Mongolia as well as Europe, Ferrari said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always looking to bring new ideas and dishes to share with Shorelineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diverse visitors. Jacobs wants to add savory baked goods to the brunch menu, such as tartes fines, which are French puff pastries filled with ingredients â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;mushrooms and onions and gruyere, something like that,â&#x20AC;? she said. So with all the changes afoot, what about the park-goer who just craves a hot dog? Ferrari said the Lakeside Cafe caters to those taste buds as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even our hot dogs are delicious,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have sourced the childhood memory Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had, to find the hot dog that, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have a hot dog, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be pretty darned tasty here, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on a brioche bun or something else.â&#x20AC;?

NMOVIEREVIEWS

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER ---

(Century 20) In 1943, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is the archetypal 98-pound weakling, but he wants nothing more than to join the Army. Health issues including asthma repeatedly get him branded 4F, but as a bully tells him during a beatdown, he doesn’t know when to give up. Steve’s AllAmerican sticktoitiveness pays off when he’s chosen for a super-soldier program. Treated with super-serum and “vita-rays,” scrawny Steve Rogers becomes brawny Captain America. Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and action. Two hours, four minutes. — P.C.

COWBOYS & ALIENS --1/2

(Century 20) This entertaining genre mash-up — one part western, one part sci-fi — stretches believability but boasts an excellent cast and impressive action. When outlaw Jake Lonergan (Daniel Craig) awakes alone in the desert with fragmented memories and a high-tech device strapped to his wrist, he makes his way to a quiet old-west town run by gruff cow herder Woodrow Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford) and kindly sheriff John Taggart (Keith Carradine). A deadly attack by alien spacecrafts forces Lonergan and Dolarhyde to work together. And Lonergan’s laserblasting bracelet proves invaluable. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of western and sci-fi action and violence, some partial nudity and a brief crude reference. 1 hour, 58 minutes. — T.H.

CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE --1/2

(Century 16, Century 20) No one is particularly crazy or stupid in Glenn Ficarra and John Requa’s sad-funny movie about love. With his hangdog expressions and deadpan lines, suburban husband Steve Carell sets the tone — and exhibits more bromance chemistry with womanizer Ryan Gosling than with Julianne Moore, who plays his wife of almost 25 years. The plot centers on a heartbroken Cal Weaver (Carell), who is happily married to Emily (Moore) until she blurts out that she’s had a fling with a coworker (Kevin Bacon) and wants a divorce. The most hilarious scenes involve Gosling’s character trying to transform Carell’s loser into a Lothario. Rated: PG-13 for coarse humor, sexual content and language. 1 hour, 47 minutes. — S.T.

THE DEBT---

(Century 16, Century 20) Based on the 2007 Israeli film “Ha-Hov,” “The Debt” concerns three Mossad operatives whose confrontation of a Nazi war criminal wins them accolades. So why are they all so grim? We find out in two unfolding timelines: accounts of the 1966 mission as well as the 1997 incidents that dredge up longburied secrets. In the past, Rachel (Jessica Chastain) joins David (Sam Worthington) Stefan (Marton Csokas) to ensnare an exNazi doctor (Jesper Christensen) working as a proctologist in East Germany. In 1997 Israel, Rachel (Helen Mirren), David (Ciaran Hinds), and Stefan (Tom Wilkinson) squirm in the spotlight that’s been refocused on them by the publication of a nonfiction book about the mission. Rated R for some violence and language. One hour, 53 minutes. — P.C


-PDBM/FXT THE HELP --

(Century 16, Century 20) Despite being a privileged white girl obliged to play nice with the community’s nasty cliques of racists, Skeeter (Emma Stone) has the soul of a rebel. She decides to help the help — that is, work against the mistreatment of local black maids by getting them to tell her their stories, which Skeeter will fashion into a book she’s writing on spec for a Harper & Row editor (Mary Steenburgen). Rated PG-13 for thematic material. Two hours, 27 minutes. — P.C.

HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 2 ----

(Century 16, Century 20) “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” caps the series with visual panache and emotional punch. The wizarding world has taken a dark turn as the vile Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) makes a final violent push for complete dominion. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his two companions, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), set out to destroy the remaining Horcruxes (magical items that empower Voldemort). Their quest leads them to a vault at Gringotts Wizarding Bank and a meeting with Aberforth Dumbledore (Ciaran Hinds), brother of murdered Hogwarts school headmaster Albus. Meanwhile, Voldemort and his band of maniacal Death Eaters, including the ruthless Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter), prepare for an assault on Hogwarts. Rated PG-13 for some intense action violence and frightening images. 2 hours, 5 minutes. — T.H.

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS ---1/2

(Guild) Owen Wilson plays Gil Pender, an American in Paris beguiled by the notion that “every street, every boulevard is its own special art form.” A self-described Hollywood hack, Gil is a successful screenwriter who grinds out movie scripts but longs to write real literature. And then with a magical stroke reminiscent of “The Purple Rose of Cairo,” the admirer of 1920s Paris becomes immersed in his favorite period. An incredulous Gil interacts with expatriate icons of the Lost Generation and the artists who contributed to the legendary time and place. Rated PG-13 for some sexual references and smoking. 1 hour, 34 minutes. — S.T.

ONE DAY -1/2

(Palo Alto Square, Century 20) The one day in question is St. Swithin’s Day, July 15. On July 15, 1988, sensible workingclass girl Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and obnoxious, well-off Dexter Mayhew (the overestimated Jim Sturgess) graduate from the University of Edinburgh and, finding themselves otherwise alone, wind up making a dash for the bedroom despite being considerably less cozy than two peas in a pod. “One Day” reunites us with Dex and Emma repeatedly on July 15s, between 1988 and 2006. Like so many pictures about love, “One Day” seems to take place in an unrecognizable alternate universe, albeit a boring and annoying one. Rated PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language, some violence and substance abuse. One hour, 48 minutes. — P.C.

uniformed police officer. When Ned can no longer stand to sleep in his old bed under the smothering watch of his wine-swilling mother (Shirley Knight), he makes the rounds of his reluctant sisters’ homes. First, he stays with Liz (Emily Mortimer) and her documentary-filmmaker husband, Dylan (Steve Coogan). Failing that, he crashes with Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), a ladderclimbing Vanity Fair writer, causes more problems, and moves on to bisexual sis Natalie (Zooey Deschanel) and her lawyer girlfriend, Cindy (Rashida Jones). Rated R for sexual content including nudity, and for language throughout. One hour, 30 minutes. — P.C.

SARAH’S KEY --1/2

(Aquarius) Kristin Scott Thomas plays journalist Julia Jarmond, assigned by her magazine to cover the 60th anniversary of the Vel’ d’Hiv’ Roundup. An enduring national shame, the roundup found the French police arresting 13,000 Jews in Paris then transporting them to an internment camp before their final destination of Auschwitz. Coincidentally, the apartment Julia and her husband have inherited from his family once belonged to a Jewish family displaced during the roundup. Fearing the worst, Julia begins investigating personal histories: what became of the Jewish family, and what role her own family may have played. Julia’s investigation unlocks a storyline that plays out in flashbacks, that of 10-year-old Sarah (Melusine Mayance) and her family. During the roundup, Sarah tries to protect her brother by locking him in a secret compartment. By the time she realizes she may have done more harm than good, it’s too late. Rated PG-13 for thematic material including disturbing situations involving the Holocaust. One hour, 50 minutes. — P.C

SENNA --

(Aquarius) Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna was a driven individual, from his teen and young adult years as a karting champion to his eventual world championships on the well-lit international stage of Formula One. The handsome Senna parlayed his instant fame into celebrity girlfriends, which drew paparazzi attention while he quietly donated millions to impoverished Brazilian children. By giving us insights into the strategies and work ethic and psychology of the legendary Senna, Kapadia brings to life his subject’s statement “Nothing ever comes easy.” Rated PG-13 for some strong language and disturbing images. One hour, 46 minutes. — P.C
