What's Showing In Independent, Foreign & Documentary Film

Mar 23, 2018

With March coming to a close, Up To Date's Film Critics returned to get us caught up on the flicks showing around town. But first, we met the writer and director of "Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death," which chronicles how nine individuals, including a Prairie Village surgeon, reconcile themselves with their own mortality. Then, the critics review recent movies, including "Madame," "Oh Lucy!" "I Kill Giants," "Flower," "The Death of Stalin," "Thoroughbreds," "November," "The Party," "Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story" and "A Fantastic Woman."

  • Helen Whitney, writer and director, "Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death"

'Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death' airs on PBS on March 26 at 8 p.m. For more information, go to intothenightdoc.com and PBS.org.
