Things start warming up Friday (including the weather) at the Hamptons International Festival. But there's one bit of bad news: “Greetings From Tim Buckley,” a biopic about the 1960s troubadour and his son, Jeff (Penn Badgley), has been pulled from the fest. Still, here are some recommendations for the day. All times are afternoon.
1 p.m. at UA East Hampton: John Nash, the Nobel-winning economist, may not be your usual film-fest celebrity. But he'll be here for an extended Q&A after a screening of “A Beautiful Mind,” which was based on his life.
3:30 p.m. at UA East Hampton: Tobey Maguire plays against type as a morally dubious doctor in “The Details,” a black comedy from Jacob Estes. With Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney and Ray Liotta.
3:30 p.m. at Southampton Regal: “Out of the Clear Blue Sky” is a documentary that examines the outsize impact of 9/11 on the financial firm Cantor Fitzgerald. The filmmaker lost a brother who worked there.
