"Big Miracle" and "Safe House" are now playing at Town Theatre, 1029 N. Second St.

Big Miracle (PG) Cold water and the Cold War serve as backdrops for this fact-based tale about the extraordinary efforts of an animal activist (Drew Barrymore) and a small-town reporter (John Krasinski) to save a family of whales trapped by ice in the Arctic Circle.

Safe House (R) It's sad when an actor as great as Denzel Washington continues to waste his talents on generic drivel like this in which he plays a renegade CIA agent on the run (Jason Bourne style) from his handlers. But what can you do when being the next Nic Cage means more to him than striving for quality. Ryan Reynolds costars.
