In “Perfect Days,” Hirayama is content with his simple life cleaning toilets in Tokyo. Outside of his structured routine, he cherishes music on cassette tapes, books and taking photos of trees. Unexpected encounters reveal more of his story in a deeply moving and poetic reflection on finding beauty in the world around us. The film, directed by Wim Wenders, is nominated for an Academy Award in the best international feature category.

“Perfect Days” is rated PG and is showing through March 21.

“The Zone of Interest,” a best picture Oscar nominee, follows the commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife, Hedwig, as they strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp. Nominated for five Academy Awards, “The Zone of Interest” dispassionately examines the ordinary existence of people complicit in horrific crimes and forces viewers to take a cold look at the mundanity behind an unforgivable brutality.

“The Zone of Interest” is rated PG-13 and is showing through March 14.
