>THREE KINGS American soldiers (George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube) set out to steal Saddam Hussein’s secret cache of gold after the Gulf War but get sidetracked into a much nobler mission. Twists and turns and packs a wallop. (R)

GUINEVERE Refreshingly clear-eyed look at affair between a younger woman (the ferociously talented Sarah Polley) and an older man (Stephen Rea). Smart, funny and exquisitely sad. Designing Women’s Jean Smart scores as Polley’s disapproving mom. (R)

BOYS DON’T CRY The ugly underbelly of a small Nebraska town is revealed in this blistering drama, based on a true story, about the murder of a young woman found to have been passing for a man. Hilary Swank is heartbreaking as the hero(ine). (R)
