WHO Shia LaBeouf

THE MOVIE "Nymphomaniac"

THE DEAL The star of Lars von Trier's sexually explicit film may not quite go the full Monty, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Louise Vesth, a producer on the closely guarded film, says that body doubles and digital trickery were used for the hard-core scenes. "We shot the actors pretending to have sex, and then had the body doubles who really did have sex and, in post, we will digital impose the two," Vesth said. "So, above the waist, it will be the star, and below the waist it will be the doubles." The film's cast includes Uma Thurman, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgård.

THE MOVIE "The Long Ride Home"

THE DEAL Tom Wright's documentary tells the story of Patchogue native Kevin Mincio, a young Goldman Sachs executive who put his career on hold to join the Army after 9/11. He survived a tour in Iraq and returned to the United States to start Team Jesse, a foundation named after his fallen friend Staff Sgt. Jesse Williams that helps the families of deceased soldiers. Mincio, who now lives in Mercer Island, Wash., will return home to speak at two Memorial Day screenings.

INFO Monday at 2 and 5 p.m. at Plaza Media & Arts Center, 20 Terry St., Patchogue. Tickets are $13. 631-438-0083; Proceeds will benefit Team Jesse.
