"68" (U.S.A., 1986, 9:30 p.m.). If there's anything wrong with Steve Kovacs' "68," it's excess ambition; this low-budget independent film tries to show most of the social upheavals of the summer of '68 while also giving us rounded portraits of a dozen characters, centered on a family of Hungarian immigrants who run an ethnic restaurant in San Francisco. The oldest son turns activist, the second turns gay. It's a project that would tax anyone's resources--but Kovacs' movie, if a little thin-spread, is quite likable. Two real pluses: period music and Vilmos Zsigmond-Laszlo Kovacs footage of the '56 Hungarian revolt.
