WHO Woody Allen

THE MOVIE "Fading Gigolo"

THE DEAL In one of his rare acting roles in someone else's movie, Allen steps from behind the camera to play a cash-strapped New Yorker who pimps out his best friend (writer-director John Turturro) to a couple of sexually adventurous women (Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara). The film, which premiered at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, plays next week as part of the new Elliman Film Series.

WHEN | WHERE Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Soundview Cinemas, 7 Soundview Market Place, Port Washington

INFO $15-$20; 516-829-2570,


WHO Michael Caine

THE MOVIE "In the Future"

THE DEAL Paolo Sorrentino, whose drama "The Great Beauty" won the foreign-language film Oscar Sunday, will begin shooting his next film in May with Caine, Variety reports. "In the Future" will be a "small, intimate film," Sorrentino told the Italian daily La Repubblica, about the "friendship between two old people." Caine, 80, is as active as ever: He's set to appear in Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi film "Interstellar" and Brad Anderson's thriller "Eliza Graves."


THE FILM "Here One Day"

THE DEAL Kathy Leichter's documentary centers on a hidden box of audiotapes discovered after her mother's suicide -- though it would be another 16 years before the filmmaker could bring herself to listen to the material. "Here One Day" paints a picture of one woman's struggle with mental illness and the effects of her suicide on those she loved. It screens this weekend as part of the Reelabilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival, with Leichter appearing in person.

WHEN | WHERE Sunday at 2 p.m. at Cinema Arts Centre, 423 Park Ave., Huntington
