BLACK SWAN —The real-life back stage story that mirrors the plot and characters on stage makes "Black Swan" simply mesmerizing. Be aware that "Black Swan" lives up to its name; it is dark — even disturbing — and clearly is not for everyone. It richly deserves its R rating. 108 minutes; R; CNS rating: O (strong sexual content, including graphic lesbian and nonmarital heterosexual activity, disturbing violent images, profanity, drugs) (Broadway, Tinseltown Layton, Tinseltown Ogden, Junction); Doug Wright, KSL Radio: ★★★½

She stumbles across a basement nightclub called Burlesque, is enraptured by the elaborate girly floor shows, gets a job serving drinks and, one special night, must step into the star's shoes.100 minutes; PG-13; CNS rating: O (benign view of premarital sex and homosexuality, an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, fleeting rear nudity, often suggestive and briefly obscene dancing, several uses of profanity and one rough and some crude and crass terms); Robert W. Butler, McClatchy Newspapers: ★★½

THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER — This third installment of the film series likely won't disappoint Narnia enthusiasts of either the film or literary variety. It's colorful and visually sharp with steady amounts of action, some of which may be a little too scary for the little ones. Also shown in 3D. 115 minutes; PG; CNS classification: A-II (considerable peril, bloodless violence, mild bathroom jokes); Aaron Shill, Deseret News: ★★★

COUNTRY STRONG — Gwyneth Paltrow stars as Kelly Canter, a country singer back on the rise after spending time in rehab. The drama comes with romantic complications between the country singer, her husband and manager James (Tim McGraw) and her rehab caregiver and new opening act Beau Hutton (Garrett Hedlund). 112 minutes; PG-13; CNS rating: A-III (implied adulterous and premarital sex, prevasive crude language and fleeting profanity); Bill Goodykoontz, Gannett: ★½
