Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Winchester“: Helen Mirren in a haunted house — hmm. “A Fantastic Woman,” from Chile, has gotten sterling reviews and is an Oscar nominee. TV/Streaming: “Retribution” on Netflix isn’t bad at all. I’d gone off “Victoria,” Sundays on PBS, but this season the young queen and her consort have regained my interest. Music: You know you’re old when you listen to Amazon Prime playlists and know ALL the lyrics from the 60s to the 90s, but nothing since! Except Taylor Swift, of course. Books: “The Largesse of the Sea Maiden” is a splendid coda to the career of the late Denis Johnson. Sports: If Brady and the Pats triumph yet again on Sunday, remember: they’ve never beaten a New York team in a Super Bowl! Finally: In February, the days start feeling longer.
