What's Showing In Independent, Foreign & Documentary Film

John Platt
IFC Midnight

Your local theater has a slew of cinema to choose from right now — from a romantic camping trip gone horribly wrong to a gritty documentary focused on the rising costs of prescription drugs. Today, Up To Date's Film Critics discuss Big Pharma: Market Failure with the chair of Physicians for a National Health Program Missouri, and other indie, foreign, and documentary films now showing, including Atomic Blonde, A Ghost Story, Killing Ground, Score: A Film Music Documentary, The Little Hours, Maudie, and The Big Sick.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., 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. My email is steve@kcur.org.
