Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Everybody is in the new “Furious 7,” except Helen Mirren, who says she wants to be in the next one. Speaking of Miss Mirren, she is the main reason to see this weekend’s “Woman in Gold.” Television: The passionate Annie Lennox stars in a “Great Performances” on Friday. Sunday is all about the premiere of “Wolf Hall,” with the great Mark Rylance. And don’t miss the new Sinatra documentary on HBO Sunday and Monday. Music: Sufjan Steven’s new album, “Carrie & Lowell,” is getting smoking reviews. Do you listen to Bach on Good Friday? I do, sometimes. Books: Last weekend’s eye-popping HBO documentary has got me revisiting “Going Clear,” Lawrence Wright’s expose of Scientology. Sports: My hope for this weekend’s March Madness finales: anyone but Kentucky. Finally: My main association with Easter is not Judy Garland but the smell of vinegar and Paas. Happy Egg Rolling!
