14 real-life films that speak to the grown-up audience

Neil Young Journeys: Directed by Jonathan Demme, the film chronicles Young's performance last May at Massey Hall in Toronto, where he was born. (In theaters beginning June 29.)

About Face: The Supermodels, Then and Now: Features interviews with Christie Brinkley, Jerry Hall, Beverly Johnson, Isabella Rossellini and others about how they have dealt with the effects of aging. (Premieres on HBO July 30.)

Searching for Sugar Man: The film introduces us to a soulful musician who was discovered in the late '60s in a Detroit bar and projected to be the finest recording artist of his generation. But when his first album bombed, he faded into obscurity — until now. (Limited theatrical release July 27.)

The Central Park Effect: A lovely film about the astounding variety of wild birds that frequent New York City's Central Park, and the devoted birders who track their migration. (Premieres on HBO this summer.)

Samsara: A trip to sacred grounds and war sites, natural wonders and industrial developments around the world, this sensory smash was filmed over a span of five years in 25 countries on five continents. (Theatrical release Aug. 24.)

High Ground: A group of veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq — many of them physically and emotionally wounded — set out to climb a mountain in the Himalayas as part of their healing. (Theatrical release in August.)

Ethel: A long view of the life of Ethel Kennedy, wife of assassinated presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, who reluctantly agrees to be interviewed on camera by her youngest daughter, filmmaker Rory Kennedy. (Premieres on HBO in October.)

Get Real! Wise Women Speak: A montage of interviews with female luminaries, including Jane Fonda, Della Reese, Marianne Williamson and others about their "third acts." (DVD available for purchase now from Cowgirl Films; limited theatrical release this fall.)
