This weekend, while drivers wheel around the Inner Harbor for the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix, moviegoers a few blocks from downtown will be watching the story of a brave, imaginative man who was the Muhammad Ali or Michael Jordan of auto racing. "Senna," which opened at the Landmark Harbor East on Friday, is a thrilling movie — a documentary action portrait of the Brazilian racecar driver Ayrton Senna, who became the greatest Formula One champion in history. Senna was a ray of hope to his beleaguered nation in the 1980s and 1990s, when the South American giant was emerging from a military dictatorship.

Two people who claim that DNA tests prove they are the biological offspring of a now-deceased Roman Catholic priest have filed a lawsuit seeking $10 million in damages from his Baltimore-based order. Carla A. Latty, 56, of New Jersey and her brother, Adrian Senna, 63, of British Columbia, say the Rev. Francis E. Ryan, a member of Saint Joseph's Society of the Sacred Heart, had a long-running relationship with their birth mother beginning in Montgomery, Ala., in the 1940s. But rather than acknowledge his paternity and take financial responsibility for his children, the plaintiffs argue, Ryan and his superiors in the order concealed the sexual affair and instead moved Ryan to a succession of assignments in Washington, D.C., and New Orleans.
