Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Transcendence,” with Johnny Depp, does not look transcendent. If you have a desire to see Woody Allen acting again onscreen, catch “Fading Gigolo.” Television: “Peter Pan” never goes away: see Milwaukee Ballet’s version on Friday. Can we get through an entire Sunday (“The Good Wife,” “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men”) without a major character getting whacked? Music: Everybody eventually loves Pharrell: see “GIRL” for why. How about a little Irving Berlin, as in “Easter Parade,” this weekend? Books: Matt Taibbi‘s “Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap” has some fascinating reporting and manages to take the income-inequality debate somewhere fresh. Sports: NBA playoffs have started: can Brooklyn get past the first round? Does the Eastern Conference winner matter? Finally: When I think of Easter I think of Paas dye and vinegar.
