Q'ORIANKA KILCHER looks slightly out of place with the lunch crowd at the Four Seasons. Kilcher, who stars as Pocahontas in Terrence Malick's historical epic "The New World," is decades younger than most of the other diners, and with her long, dark hair and faux suede coat trimmed in fake-fur fringe, she could be a hippie from the '60s.

The true story of how Hawaii lost its sovereignty and became annexed to the United States may have been an interesting one, but it makes for starchy entertainment in the historical drama "Princess Kaiulani." Written and directed by Mark Forby and told through the eyes of its title character, a half-Hawaiian, half-Scottish princess (bloodlessly played by "The New World's" Q'orianka Kilcher) who, in the late 1800s, defended her homeland against American injustice, the film is too reverently drawn and self-consciously played to muster any real momentum.

Lives intersect, but so do Tarantino-esque clichés, in "The Power of Few," a ham-fisted, timeline-altering variety pack of crime set in New Orleans. Five vignettes take place over the same small chunk of temporal real estate, ending in a ripple effect of violence. A desperate young man (Devon Gearhart) needs medicine for his baby brother; two spies (Christian Slater, Nicky Whelan) hunt a possible terrorist; a flirty messenger (Q'orianka Kilcher, who also produced) rescues a man (Jesse Bradford)

"THE New World," Terrence Malick's sweeping interpretation of the Pocahontas/John Smith story, will raise the curtain on the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 5. The famously private Malick isn't expected to attend, but Q'orianka Kilcher, who plays the Native American princess, will be there. It's not clear whether she will be joined by Colin Farrell, who plays Smith. He checked into rehab recently.

Yankee-doodle dandies Warren Beatty and Ben Stiller (neither one British) and Helena Bonham Carter (veddy British indeed) are among the film stars feted at the "2011 Britannia Awards," presented by BAFTA Los Angeles. (TV Guide, 8:30 p.m.) We do believe in fairies! Keira Knightley voices Tinker Bell, and Charlie Rowe (below, with Q'Orianka Kilcher) is the boy who would be Peter Pan, in "Neverland," a new two-part twist on J.M. Barrie's beloved children's tale. (Syfy, 9 p.m.; concludes Mon., 9 p.m.)

It's become something of a holiday tradition — every couple of years, Syfy turns out a star-studded prequel to a beloved children's story — "Tin Man" in 2007, "Alice " in 2009. This time, it's J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan" that goes through the mirror darkly in "Neverland," a cleverly conceived, at times visually lovely, but criminally long imagining of how Peter became Pan. It's difficult to imagine a more oft-told tale than "Peter Pan," which, in recent memory has been made into two live action films ("Hook," "Peter Pan")

With awards season in full swing, two Oscar hopefuls -- director Robert Zemeckis ("Flight") and actor Richard Gere ("Arbitrage") -- are being feted with retrospectives at the American Cinematheque. "Who Framed Smart Entertainment: An In-Person Tribute to Robert Zemeckis" is to kick off Nov. 26 at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica with two of the director's early works: the 1984 hit comedy-romance-adventure "Romancing the Stone," with Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas, and the 1980 comedy "Used Cars," with Kurt Russell and Jack Warden.

SAO PAULO, Brazil - The Brazilian government is pressing forward with controversial legislation that critics say will lead to widespread destruction of the Amazon rain forest. After months of heated discussion, President Dilma Rousseff on Monday presented a final version of the bill that was heavily influenced by the country's powerful agricultural lobby. The update to the country's 1965 Forestry Code would reduce both the amount of vegetation landowners must preserve and the future penalties paid for those who currently flout environmental laws.

The Internal Revenue Service said this week that Honda's FCX qualified for a $12,000 federal tax credit. That would be good news for the owners of the hydrogen-powered car -- if there were any. Only two of the futuristic fuel-cell vehicles are in private hands, and both of those are on $500-a-month leases. That means Honda technically owns the cars. Which also means that Honda gets the tax credit.
