Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: If you’re in an arty mood, here are two excellent selections: “Petite Maman,” in French and directed by Celine Sciamma; and “Firebird,” being billed as the gay love story “that Putin doesn’t want you to see”…TV/Streaming: I’m disappointed in “A Very British Scandal,” but it stars “The Crown”‘s divine Claire Foy as a trashy Duchess so I’m watching anyway…”Downton Abbey” disappears from Netflix this weekend, so this is your last chance to get your fix of Maggie Smith…Books: I don’t agree with everything in Tina Brown’s “The Palace Papers,” about the English royals, but it’s a juicy read…Music: “Wicked” is being turned into two movies but I’m not complaining: every time I’m tempted to complain I listen to Idina Menzel sing “Defying Gravity”…Sports: I guess I’m rooting for Golden State now in the NBA playoffs.
