Blue Caprice (R)

Most movies based on real-life crimes try to recreate the events in painstaking detail, so we understand exactly what happened and why. Blue Caprice, director Alexandre Moors’ drama about the 2002 Beltway sniper murders, takes a different approach. The movie opens in Antigua, where the teenaged Lee (Tequan Richmond) watches helplessly as his mother leaves home in search of work, promising to return for him. Bored, lonely and nearly destitute, Lee wanders the island and spots John (Isaiah Washington) frolicking on the beach with his three young children.
