Here are snapshots of what our movie reviewers thought of the movies opening this week in the Seattle area. (Star ratings are granted on a scale of zero to four.)

★★ “Solo: A Star Wars Story” (PG-13; 140 minutes) Alden Ehrenreich wears a smirk throughout “Solo: A Star Wars Story” that turns Han Solo into a guy who is just this side of insufferable. By contrast, that’s not a problem for Donald Glover in the role of Lando Calrissian. He’s a cool smoothie very much in the mold of Billy Dee Williams. Full review. Several theaters. — Soren Andersen, Special to The Seattle Times

★★★½ “Disobedience” (R; 114 minutes) Sebastián Lelio’s story of a love triangle unfolds quietly but passionately, with a generosity of spirit toward its three central characters, played by Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola. Weisz and McAdams, in particular, have a way of gazing at each other that tells stories. Full review. Several theaters. — Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times arts critic

★★ “Beast” (R; 107 minutes) The scenes between the film’s stars Jessie Buckley and Johnny Flynn are electric, the island landscapes haunting and the atmospherics are right in this stylish psychodrama about a woman who becomes smitten with a stranger who many locals suspect of being a serial killer. Full review. Meridian and Seattle 10. — David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
