Tips for Tomorrow

Can at the Film Society of Lincoln Center

As part of the Film Society's Turkish cinema retrospective, the Sundance Film Festival-winner Can screens tonight. Rasi Celikezer's film follows a couple struggling to conceive a child -- who resort to illegal means in order to obtain a baby. Çelikezer will be on hand for a post-screening Q&A.

Walter Reade Theater, 165 W. 65th St. 8:40 p.m. $13.

Ane Brun at Bowery Ballroom

It's been four years since Norwegian singer-songwriter Ane Brune graced us with an album. Now she's returned with It All Starts With One, a haunting, epic collection of operatic new tunes. She headlines the Bowery Ballroom tonight.

Bowery Ballroom, 6 Delancey St. 7 p.m. $15.

Robert Caro at Barnes & Noble

One of the greatest historians and biographers of all time, Robert Caro, reads from his long-awaited fourth installment of his Lyndon B. Johnson multi-volume biography, "The Passage of Power," which, incidentally Bill Clinton (yes, that Bill Clinton) glowingly reviewed in the Times this weekend.
