Led by helicopter Blade Ranger (voiced by Ed Harris), the team includes a tanker named Dipper (voiced by Julie Bowen) who has her prop set on Dusty.

Begin Again (R)
• 8:15p.m. Homer Theatre.

But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. (1hrs, 52min)
