Directed by Derick Martini from a screenplay adapted by Andrea Portes from her own novel,"Hick" is part road movie and part coming-of-age story but mostly plays like some creepy-perv fantasia looking for mileage from the mature-beyond-her-years presence of young star Chloë Grace Moretz. As a movie-obsessed 13-year-old who runs away from her barfly parents, Moretz's character finds herself batted between a slightly older grifter-drifter (Blake Lively) and a reckless cowboy (Eddie Redmayne)

When news broke a week ago of the death of film critic Roger Ebert, his last published review at the time was a lukewarm notice of sci-fi film "The Host. " It seemed more fitting when a review of "To the Wonder," opening Friday, was published posthumously. Ebert had long supported the work of filmmaker Terrence Malick. "To the Wonder," with a love triangle storyline said to be drawn partly from Malick's own life, is a mystic-minded meditation on romantic love and religious faith.

I don't believe it! I think Robert Hilburn has actually topped himself. He's got to be the first "reporter" to go to a concert (Ratt/Poison) and not review it ("Parents Find Peace at Rock Concert," April 13). Instead, he interviews parents at the Long Beach Arena's new "Quiet Room." What's next, Bob? Go to a Bon Jovi concert and review how much it's not like a Springsteen show? Oops, sorry. He's already done that. TARIK M. TRAD Montclair
