A childless couple identified as D and H-she a performance artist and he, seemingly an architect-live and work in a sleek modernist house in London.

Artist Michael Heizer finally finds the right piece of granite-a 340 ton boulder for his installation at the LA County Museum of Art.

Though she's older, married, and the mother of two, Brian can't help but be drawn to her and the two begin a cinq-a-sept affair. It's a clash with his traditional values and his parents (Frank Langella and Glenn Close) can barely handle the news, but Brian couldn't be more smitten. As the two fall deeper in love, Brian begins to wish for more than just the hours of five to seven and soon the two must face the most significant decision of their lives. An emotionally powerful debut from writer and director Victor Levin, who shows how hard you will fight for love when the odds are stacked against you. www.thepicturehouse.org.

    CHRIS LARSON: THE KATONAH RELOCATION PROJECT. Katonah Museum of Art, 134 Jay St., Katonah. Sun., Mar. 29-June 28. Exhibition is inspired by the tale of Katonah's relocation in the late 19th century. When multimedia artist Chris Larson heard about it, he knew he had stumbled upon a strange and inspiring story. Forced from their original location by the building of the Cross River Reservoir, the townspeople came up with a plan-they lifted their homes onto logs to be pulled by horses along soap-slicked timbers, re-siting their town to present-day Katonah. Tying this remarkable history of relocation to the building of the Katonah Museum of Art by local architect Edward Larrabee Barnes, Larson replicates Barnes' private Mt. Kisco home at full scale in the sculpture garden. He constructs the modernist structure as if it were dragged in on logs, elevated on timber cribbing and pierced through by the Norway spruce trees. Additional works in the galleries, including some cast in soap, respond directly to Katonah's history and culture. Larson is a multimedia artist known for his sensitive and often dramatic responses to architectural environments and histories. Hours: Sun., 12-5 p.m., Tues.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. $10 adults; $5 seniors and students; members and children under 12 are free. www.katonahmuseum.org.
