Cole Carter, an aspiring DJ played by Zac Efron, doubtfully knows what a bildungsroman is, even though that's what he's experiencing in director Max Joseph's "We Are Your Friends." Quite simply, it's a subgenre of the good old coming-of-age story, wherein the protagonist, usually in his late teens or early twenties, forms his view of things. In filmdom, we've been taking note of this psychological transition ever since Andy Hardy popularized the notion back in the fictional town of Carvel. Like the carnival barker said, "It's never new,

Director James Ponsoldt's "The End of the Tour," dramatizing the real-life interview between "Rolling Stone" reporter David Lipsky and acclaimed author David Foster Wallace, affirmed for me why I don't have any writer friends. To use an apt phrase from the 1960s, it'd be a bit too heavy ... the constant thrust and parry of egos dominating whatever relationship there existed. Spare me the scrutinization of my participles, the possible overuse of commas and a penchant for flowery sarcasm. Nope. Give me teachers, explorers and entrepreneurs for pals. I'll

Labor Day marks the conclusion of the summer music festival season, and so the local classical music scene coalesces, as presenters favor intimate spaces for chamber music.

This will become the dominant genre of music making to be found until next June, when the warm late spring weather invites us to share massed performances outdoors at Tanglewood and other venues, large and small.

Looking ahead, you’ll find a variety of concerts presented in churches, chapels, small auditoriums, halls and the like throughout the region. Even Tanglewood’s acoustically superb Ozawa Hall is really too big for a string quartet or piano trio to be heard to best advantage; a
