Esquire wants to get into an Ivy League university. Rashad wants to keep his little brother out of trouble. Ant wants a taste of the good life, and isn't much concerned with the consequences. New-New wants to live her dreams, not her father's. Question is, does their Atlanta 'hood hold enough promise to satisfy such divergent pathways to adulthood? The four teenagers' struggle with issues of maturity, responsibility and social class form the basis of ATL, a promising feature debut from director (and Harford County native)

Capsules by Michael Sragow and Chris Kaltenbach, except where noted. Full reviews at baltimoresun.com/movies. ATL -- marks a promising feature debut from director (and Harford County native) Chris Robinson. This tale, of black teens in Atlanta trying to escape their neighborhoods, excels at moving beyond conventional Hollywood stereotypes. If only Robinson and screenwriter Tina Gordon Chism had paid as much attention to matters of story and narrative flow. Still, the film presents a complex depiction of the pressures faced by teens, particularly black youths.

Atlanta -- Michael Vick felt good enough to go back in the game. No need. In about a quarter and a half, he did enough to lead the Atlanta Falcons past the hapless Minnesota Vikings. Vick went down with a sprained right knee yesterday, turning it over to backup Matt Schaub and the Falcons' defense to finish off a 30-10 rout of the Vikings. "It feels fine. I just tweaked it a little bit," Vick said. "We had a good cushion, so it made sense to keep me on the sideline." Warrick Dunn rushed for 126 yards, including his 50th career touchdown on a 37-yard run, to lead a 285-yard performance on the ground.
