The River And The Sea, A Story Of Forgiveness

Author Julia Laughlin will be in Kansas City as part of the Women’s Equality Week Events. Her new book The River And The Sea, A Story Of Forgiveness tells the story of the thirty years it took Julia Laughlin to heal from the horrific attack she suffered at age twenty-one, when she was raped, beaten, and tortured by a serial killer. This book is the culmination of what brought her to healing—reaching forgiveness not only for the perpetrator, but for herself too.

Special guest host Sister Rose McLarney will talk with Julia Laughlin about the book and her journey of healing and how she finally was able to come to forgiveness.

Actor Channing Tatum and director Steven Soderbergh go rogue with their independently produced and distributed comic heist movie, “Logan Lucky.” Tatum plays a fired miner who decides to rip off all the cash for a big race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. He recruits a ragtag posse of hayseed thieves for a complicated caper. The terrific cast includes Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Daniel Craig and Hilary Swank. Soderbergh seems to be doing a self-parody of his best-known movie. So, you could call this goofy but entertaining popcorn flick, “Redneck Ocean’s 11.”

 

Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, two extremely likable actors, give a big boost to “The Hitman’s Bodyguard,” an overlong and violent action comedy about a protection agent escorting a hired killer to testify at a trial at the International Court of Justice in The Hague. There’s not a moment of credibility in this over-the-top farce, but it has wild stunts, lengthy car chases and plenty of R-rated mayhem for fans of the genre.

 

“Saturday Night Live’s” Kyle Mooney stars in and co-wrote the offbeat comedy, “Brigsby Bear.” It’s a high-concept, low-key tale about a man, kidnapped at birth and raised in isolation. When he’s freed at age 25, he attempts to complete the story of a children’s TV show he was raised on. It’s odd, but surprisingly sweet.

 

Also opening this week, “Whose Streets?” is a documentary about the uprising in Ferguson, Missouri. “Wind River” is a suspense drama starring Jeremy Renner about mysterious deaths on a Native American reservation. “Paint it Black” is a drama about the difficult dynamic that evolves between a suicide victim’s mother and girlfriend. “Kuso” is a horror film set in the aftermath of an LA earthquake. “Dave Made a Maze” is a horror comedy about a man trapped in a cardboard maze of his own creation. “68 Kill” is described as a punk-rock romantic comedy about a young woman and her boyfriend who decide to rip off her older sugar daddy. Catherine Deneuve stars in the French drama “The Midwife” about the relationship that develops between a woman and her late father’s mistress.


Perhaps the most controversial film of the year, “Detroit” recounts story of the infamous Algiers Motel incident during the 1967 riots in Motor City. Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (“The Hurt Locker”) re-teams with screenwriter (“Zero Dark Thirty”) to tell the tale of police brutality and murder.

As an additional bonus on a bonus radio book club show author Fay Jacobs joins Stefani to talk about “On a Larp.” Philip Hooser is hosting while Elizabeth Andersen is in British Columbia. These interviews were recorded in Chicago at the Golden Crown Literary Awards annual convention. 


The Harcros chemical company was recently fined for illegally storing environmentally sensitive material in their Wyandotte County locale. The Kansas Sierra Club’s Elaine Geisel returns to the program to bring us up to speed. Also, are there plans afoot to foul the Flint Hills? Flint Hills Stewards, Elexa Dawson and Karla Jo Grimmett let us know about the proposed high-pressure injection of wastewater into the Flint Hills.
