>TRIBECA FILM FEST

From intense dramas to smart comedies, the New York festival delivers films for all tastes. Some highlights:

THE BANG BANG CLUB

Ryan Phillippe and Taylor Kitsch are standouts in this booze-and-adrenaline take on four combat photographers at apartheid’s end.

THE UNION

Fans of Elton John (right) will dig director Cameron Crowe’s documentary on the making of John’s 2010 album collaboration with rock veteran Leon Russell.

EVERYTHING MUST GO

Will Ferrell proves he has the chops to play it (mostly) straight as a sad sack living on his own lawn after his wife dumps him. His redemption? A sweet friendship with a local kid (Christopher Jordan Wallace).

JESUS HENRY CHRIST

Toni Collette and Michael Sheen anchor a beautifully acted dramedy (executive-produced by Julia Roberts) about a child genius trying to find his dad.

LAST NIGHT

A couple (Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington) struggles with infidelity in this slow burner costarring Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet.

THE TRIP

Funniest travelogue ever: Comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon tour England eating fine food and doing even finer impersonations.
