It’s a good week if you like “based on a true story” movies: Both “Race” and "The Lady in the Van" are based on real people.
In addition, “Risen” is based on the Bible and “The Witch” has dialogue based on primary sources of the 17th century. And for one more "based on" tidbit, "45 Years" is based on "In Another Country," a short story by David Constantine.
Here are the new movies opening this week at York, Hanover and Gettysburg theaters:
Charlotte Rampling earned an Academy Award nomination for her role in this drama about a couple in a crumbling relationship and their upcoming 45th anniversary. Raged R. Showing at the Majestic Theater.
