The preciousness and fragility of life, healing after war, the destructiveness of bigotry . . . These are the themes of "Alan & Naomi" (selected theaters), a film with fine intentions, not always purely realized. Based on a 1978 novel by Myron Levoy and set in 1944 Brooklyn, it's about a young French girl, Naomi, who's been driven to near catatonia by the death of her Resistance fighter father.

This year's United States Film Festival, whose final showings in the ski town of Park City, Utah, wound down last Sunday, had a bracing effect that went far beyond the single-digit temperatures or the nosebleed altitude. While a panel of film maker-critics wrangled before an SRO crowd about whether "independents have lost their social conscience," and decided, "well, sort of," the news thundering down was an exhilarating "no!"
