The Holiday weekend offers may options for the movie goer. Two films that opened June 26 go beyond the typical coming of age film. Max (Warner Bros.) offers dog lovers a patriotic story for Independence Day (PG for action violence, peril, brief language and some thematic elements; 111 minutes). The much-touted Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Fox Searchlight) lives up to the buzz and provides an intelligent, meaningful story for adults as well as mature teens.
