The Book of Love (8:45 p.m., Entergy Giant Screen Theater). Formerly titled The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, this "Spotlight" series narrative film from director Bill Purple tells of the budding friendship between an architect who recently suffered a tragic loss and a young runaway who wants to build a raft and sail across the Atlantic. The film stars Jessica Biel, Jason Sudeikis and Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams.

People (10 p.m., Ace Hotel New Orleans). This New Orleans-shot debut feature by local filmmaker Shane McGoey presents six separate vignettes in which tensions rise between people in everyday situations.
