Genre: Animated Fanciful Biopic
Director: Vincent Paronnaud, Marjane Satrapi
Starring: (Voices) Chiara Mastroianni, Catherine Deneuve, Danielle Darrieux, Simon Abkarian, Gabrielle Lopes BenitesIn Brief: Pretty amazing film version of Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical comic Persepolis, about an Iranian girl growing up in the shadow of two oppressive regimes. Though playful in tone, it's a narrative that goes much deeper than one might expect.
Genre: Coming-of-Age Comedy
Director: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
Starring: Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Erin MoriartyThe Story: Three boys decide to run away and build a house of their own in a secluded spot in the woods. The Lowdown: Nicely observed coming-of-age story with a real feel for early adolescence and a keen sense of summer in the woods. It works best before too much plotting sets in, but its charms are undeniable.

Director: Nat Faxon, Jim Rash
Starring: Liam James, Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb, Maya RudolphThe Story: A lonely, awkward 14-year-old is forced to spend the summer at the beach with his mother and her new mean-spirited boyfriend. The Lowdown: It takes a while to find its footing, but this warmly nostalgic coming-of-age comedy wins out with its array of unusually well-crafted characters.
