A U.S. flag and a pink feather boa drape over the television monitor that's playing scenes from Agnès Varda's Lions Love in LACMA's current exhibition about the artist-filmmaker's time in California. The film, shot in Los Angeles, is about a threesome, two men and a women, who live in a rented Hollywood Hills home. They're in bed together when Robert Kennedy dies, watching the coverage in TV, and one of them jokes, another says not to make fun, and they all eat breakfast off a tray with butter, jam and too many glasses. It's transfixing — eccentric, perverse, funny and endearing. 5905 Wilshire Blvd., Mid-Wilshire; through June 22. (323) 857-6000, lacma.org.

Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 3. Continues through June 22, 2013
