What's Showing In Independent, Foreign & Documentary Film

Ever pretend you were Canadian in a foreign country? A new film based on a true story has a group of Americans doing just that to sneak past Iranian border guards.

Friday on Up to Date, indie, foreign and documentary film critics Cynthia Haines and Steve Walker will also review documentaries that track down a ‘70s icon and look at lives all over the world through a colorful, yet silent, lens.

Plus, we'll have a dose of college life and a dysfunctional family comedy to keep you warm this chilly weekend.

Our list for today:

Tom & Harry: The Boss And The President (Listen to our October 8 interview with filmmaker Terence O'Malley here)

Liberal Arts


Seven Psychopaths

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Searching for Sugar Man


Pitch Perfect

Atlas Shrugged: Part II
