The masterful director re-imagined Dostoyevsky's 19th century novel The Idiot) into a celluloid creation of his own, setting unsettled characters in post-WWII Japan, as a shaken soldier returns home to find himself incapable of anything but utter candor. The truth is out there at 6:30 p.m.

(June 8-July 11) WORKING GIRL The Shakespeare Theatre Company spends some time in the boudoir with [Mrs. Warren’s Profession] (http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/plays/details.aspx?id=7607&source=t), playing tomorrow night through mid-July at the Sidney Harman Hall. A young idealist's world is turned topsy-turvy when she learns that her wealth comes from a successful chain of brothels in a play that scandalized audiences upon its debut in 1902.

(June 8) LIFE IS A LONG SONG If you like your rock and roll with a side of flute, you can catch prog-rock pioneers Jethro Tull tomorrow night at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia. Fellow Englishmen Procol Harum get things started at 7:30 p.m.
