To hear him tell it, Victoria director Sebastian Schipper didn't set out to make one of the year's most daring experiments in filmmaking. The romantic thriller is about a shy, solitary young woman (Laia Costa) in Berlin who goes out dancing only to fall for a rebellious, if gentle, local rabble-rouser. Before the first rays of the sun have warmed the city streets, the couple are pinned down in a gunfight after pulling a heist. A thrilling, dynamic story, Victoria is told in real time with a single camera in a single, 138-minute shot.

t took Laura Schriver 11 years to persuade the previous owner of her house to sell it. And, once she and her husband, Eugene Schriver III, finally purchased the Huntingdon Valley home in 2000, they spent several more years lovingly restoring and expanding it to its current 12,000 square feet. Yet the proudest day in the long and storied life of this centuries-old stone colonial was the wedding of the Schrivers' daughter, Victoria, to Jamie Luteman. "To invite people to your home for a wedding is very fulfilling," Laura says.

Split factions, changing allegiances, accusations of cronyism and shoddy leadership. It might sound like township politics - but the world of midget football can be as divisive around here. The Williamstown Warriors are at the center of this war in Gloucester County. Upset with the management of the league - which caters to boys 5 to 14 and aspiring cheerleaders of the same age - a group of coaches has splintered off, taking many of their athletes with them and touching off a veritable football feud.

'What little girl does not dream of growing up a princess?" asks Emily Blunt in her voice-over at the start of the deliciously dressed-up protofeminist biopic The Young Victoria . But, you know, "even a palace can be a prison," she muses, ruefully. Ah, yes. There she is, cloistered teen, granddaughter of George III, next in line for the throne, wandering the gilded halls and formal gardens, no friends, no fun, no iPhone. What's a lonesome heiress presumptive to do? Whether or not director Jean-Marc Vallée and writer Julian Fellowes' depiction of the accession of Britain's mighty 19th-century monarch is accurate, the film they've made, with its candlelight-flooded parlors, its royal balls and banquets, and its backroom scheming, stands as grand entertainment.

Beyond the Bloodhounds (Canvasback /Atlantic ***) "I don't know nothing about Southern belles," Adia Victoria sings on "Stuck in the South. " "But I can tell you something about Southern hell. " The debut album by the 29-year-old native South Carolinian, who's now based in Nashville, doesn't go in for pastoral reveries about dear old Dixie. Instead, the African American guitarist turns them on their heads, chillingly evoking a lynching, for instance, as she sings about "dreaming of swinging from an old palmetto tree.

VICTORIA LEAVY never left the house without being stylishly dressed, from her signature hat down, all perfectly matched. And, oh, yes, every hair in place.

"I used to visit her there and make sure she had all she needed to be perfectly dressed," said her daughter, the Rev. Dr. Lorina Marshall Blake. "She was a real cover girl. " Victoria Elizabeth Leavy, a child-care worker, active Baptist churchwoman and a devoted family matriarch, died Monday.

You could argue that Victoria, the title character of Sebastian Schipper's bold one-night-in-Berlin drama, displays poor judgment when it comes to the company she keeps, the cars she agrees to climb into. It could also be argued that four-star hotels are more discerning about guests looking for a room without a reservation and that there are probably surveillance cameras in those elevators, too. And wouldn't the Berlin police show a little more skill in cordoning off an apartment building where a couple of fugitives are hiding out?
