What's Showing In Independent, Foreign & Documentary Film, November 7

A marriage proposal leads one woman to hiding out in the home of her 16-year-old best friend, and a young boy finds an unlikely friend in the bawdy, hedonistic veteran next door.

On Friday's Up to Date, our indie, documentary and foreign film critics are back to review the latest films showing on area screens. We also look at the story of Edward Snowden and how an actor tries to make a comeback on Broadway.

The films:

  • Citizenfour
  • Awake: The Life of Yogananda
  • Laggies
  • Overnighters
  • Two Faces of January
  • Birdman
  • St. Vincent
  • Kill the Messenger
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
