What better place to wait out the never-ending heat advisory than in a cool, dark theater? Or curled up on the couch in front of a blasting air conditioner?

With summer heat bearing down on KC, everyone could use a few good recommendations to away -- at least mentally -- for a little while. Friday on Up to Date, critics Cynthia Haines, Steve Walker, and Bob Butler review the latest art, independent, foreign, and documentary films showing on area screens, and recommend a few to watch on the big screen at home.

Our list:

Safety Not Guaranteed

Moonrise Kingdom

Your Sister's Sister

Seeking A Friend for the End of the World

The Intouchables
