12 YEARS A SLAVESteve McQueen’s exquisite take on a true story of one man’s struggle with “the peculiar institution.” 133 mins. R for violence/cruelty, some nudity and brief sexuality. ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦

AMERICAN HUSTLE — David O. Russell’s caper comedy is built around the 1970s ABSCAM scandal, a wide-ranging FBI sting operation from the golden age of such stings. 138 mins. R for language, sexual content and brief violence. ♦ ♦ ♦ 1/2

ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES — This may not leave the same imprint on American culture as its super-quotable predecessor, but it has moments of howling hilarity. 119 mins. PG-13 for crude and sexual content, drug use, language and comic violence. ♦ ♦ ♦

AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY — For all the scenic prairie panoramas and lived-in look of the big, rural Oklahoma house that is the setting, this still feels like a play — with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and pretty much everybody else projecting to the back row. 125 mins. R for language, including sexual references, and for drug material. ♦ ♦ 1/2

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE — This humorless chatterbox of intrigues, rebellion and a “Twilighty” love triangle packs in some real pathos. 146 mins. PG-13 for intense violence/action, frightening images, theme, a suggestive situation and language. ♦ ♦

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET — Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) makes Jay Gatsby look like a piker.

R for strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drugs and language throughout, and for violence. ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
