Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Scott Eastwood is the reason to see “The Longest Ride.” The ubiquitous Alicia Vikander is the reason to see “Ex Machina.” Television: Norm Lewis — a fine Porgy opposite Audra McDonald — has a “Live from Lincoln Center” concert on Friday. On Sunday, “Game of Thrones” and “Silicon Valley” return on HBO. Music: Rhiannon Giddens’ new CD, “Tomorrow Is My Turn,” is absolutely worth a listen. Did you know that Garland and Streisand recorded an album of duets? Books: “Women of Will” is Tina Packer’s brilliant assembly of observations about female characters in Shakespeare. Sports: Can Rory McIlroy win the Master’s and capture a career Grand Slam? He’ll have to improve on that mediocre first round. Finally: April is NOT the cruelest month; November is.
