Higher Ground

A standout at this year's Sundance, Vera Farmiga's directorial debut about a woman searching for God in a hippie Christian community is no vanity project; it's one of the few films to explore notions of faith as something sustaining and suffocating without simply resorting to knee-jerk judgment. In fact, Higher Ground's subtle cinematic style suggests our generation's Streep may have found a higher calling behind the camera.—DF (BMCC Tribeca, Apr 26 at 9:30pm; AMC Village VII, Apr 29 at 2:30pm)
