MOVIES

Family compromises

Lou Cedrone

"City of Hope" has almost too many plots going for it, but the principal one carries the film most effectively. Tony Lo Bianco is the contractor who finds himself party to appalling deeds, but he knows he must compromise himself to save his family. Vincent Spano is the contractor's son who turns to drugs and crime and is the source of most of his father's grief. Sex, nudity, violence, language. Rating: R. *** Try an oldie this week, one that goes back to 1942. It's "Orchestra Wives," and it features Ann Rutherford and George Montgomery. Montgomery plays a band leader, and Rutherford is the wife who can't quite cope with her husband's lifestyle. The score includes "Serenade in Blue" and "At Last," two Glenn Miller hits. Jackie Gleason and Cesar Romero are also in the cast. No rating. **
