AN EDUCATION

(Encore on Comcast) A charming, intelligent coming-of-age tale set in early-’60s London. Carey Mulligan is hugely appealing as a levelheaded teenage girl who gets involved with a mysterious older man (Peter Sarsgaard). Nick Hornby adapted the script, Lone Scherfig directed, but the movie belongs to its star. (PG-13; runs through Sept. 7)

DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’: EVERYMAN’S JOURNEY

(Comcast Movie Collections: All New Movies) This overcoming-adversity documentary from director Ramona S. Diaz follows the story of Arnel Pineda, who stepped into the very large shoes of Steve Perry as lead singer of Journey. It’s an inspiring, if slightly by-the-numbers, rags-to-riches story. Who wouldn’t root for Pineda (other than maybe Perry)? (Unrated; runs through
Sept. 9)

SIDE EFFECTS

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) A sleekly clever murder mystery that plays as many games with the audience as it does with its characters. Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum play a married couple, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Jude Law play psychiatrists, somebody ends up dead. In the end, though, it’s just a genre exercise and evidence that director Steven Soderbergh is getting bored. (R; runs through Sept. 20)
