The Boston Film Festival,
now in its 27th year, has seen its
ups and downs. But its organizers definitely made a shrewd move when they

where it opens its weeklong run of world premieres. They include Peter Askin's Certainty (6:45 pm), the
tale of a young couple who undergo Catholic pre-nuptial counseling.
