'Abuse of Weakness'

This is John Waters' pick for the 2014 Maryland Film Festival, which annually is by itself enough to get a couple hundred Baltimoreans packed into a theater on a Friday night in May to see a movie they would never have given a second thought otherwise. The fact that this autobiographical tale, of a stroke-impaired filmmaker being taken advantage of by a con man, is from a world-renowned director (France's Catherine Breillat) and is getting its East Coast premiere is only icing on the cake. 7 p.m. May 9 at MICA Brown Center
