The Imposter Every parent's nightmare: Your kid goes missing. Every parent's dream: Four years later, he turns up alive. Such is the prodigal-son foundation to The Imposter, a documentary about the mounting evidence that a teenager who's returned to his Texas family after an alleged kidnapping may be someone else entirely. The clues are legion: different eye/skin color, dramatically altered behavior, sudden affinity for "Call Me Maybe." But hey, what parents wouldn't want to believe that their little tax deduction is back in the "asset" column? Get set for a study in willful deception – even if you don't bring a date. (R; opens Friday, Nov. 9, at Enzian Theater)

Also playing

Argo Ben Affleck's latest directorial effort tells the true story of a daring effort to rescue some of the Americans who were being held hostage in Iran in 1979. But will modern audiences be able to relate to a time in which an opportunistic Republican candidate made a Democratic president seem weak in his handling of an international crisis? (R)

Cloud Atlas By Friday, there might still be time to catch a screening of this ambitious era-spanning bomb, before the theaters that were contracted to show it just give up the ghost and rent out the space to RPG aficionados instead. (R)

Flight This story of an airline pilot (Denzel Washington) whose heroic acts fall under a shadow of suspicion is based loosely on a true tale that took place in Canada. Good call: It's never a bad time to remind people of the sketchy things going on up there in America's Attic. (R)

The Man With the Iron Fists Wu-Tang Clan cofounder RZA stars as a (hope you're sitting down) 19th-century Chinese blacksmith who crafts weapons with which to defend his village. And which astute talent scout took a look at RZA and said, "I see 1800s Asian craftsmanship just rolling off this guy"? Look no further than the credits: "Directed by RZA." (R)

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D This latest big-screen representation of the spooky scenarios beloved by gamers far and wide is only the second film in the series. But it's actually an adaptation of the game Silent Hill 3. And knowing that will burnish your cred immeasurably with everybody you'd prefer to avoid. (R)

Wreck-It Ralph Disney's sendup of classic arcade tropes has a career villain yearning to play the good guy for once. Just don't get any ideas about piloting Canadian aircraft, Ralph. (PG)
