This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll ask about Detroit: Are the Engines Restarting? We start with a history tour of Detroit labor from its heyday in auto and the bloody struggle to organize, and in music with the union that represented the Motown Sound. Then, we’ll hear from Detroit labor and community activists today about emergency managers, tax incentives and what kind of Detroit they are rebuilding. Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.


The raunchy ‘girls gone wild’ comedy “Rough Night” wastes a talented cast on an effort that tries to be the female equivalent of “The Hangover.” Scarlett Johansson’s friends plan a wild bachelorette party in Miami but, in a coke-induced haze, they accidentally kill a male stripper. Yes, there are some bawdy laughs, but not enough to sustain a feature-length film. It’s a rough night for the audience.

 

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the theater, we have “47 Meters Down.” Mandy Moore and Claire Holt play sisters on vacation in Mexico who get trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean, surrounded by man-eaters. It all seems pretty familiar territory by now.

 

Pixar goes back to the gas pump for more animated racecar action in “Cars 3.” While it’s not Pixar at its best, “Cars 3” is still goes through the paces in a cheery and spectacularly animated way.

 

“Kill Switch” is an effects heavy sci-fi outing that owes a lot to video games. Dan Stevens plays a pilot who faces fire from military drones and soldiers upon his return from a parallel universe. Like a game, much of the action is shown from his point of view. The movie could have benefited from a point of view.

 

Diane Lane stars in the romantic road film “Paris Can Wait,” the first dramatic feature from 81-year-old writer/director Eleanor Coppola, wife of Francis Ford Coppola. It’s a bit like watching someone else’s French vacation slides.

 

Also opening this week, “The Book of Henry” is a drama about a small town 11-year-old lad who hatches a plan to save his neighbor from her abusive dad. “All Eyez on Me” is a dramatic film that claims to tell the “true and untold story” of rapper Tupac Shakur.


Susan and Russ review a new adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s classic gothic mystery, “My Cousin Rachel.” Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”) takes on the title role of a widow who may or may not have murdered her husband. Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games”) plays a young heir who falls under her spell. The film co-stars Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”) and Holliday Grainger (“Cinderella”) and was directed by Roger Michell (“Notting Hill”).

RadioActive host David Mitchell conducts the second interview of Dr Connie Campbell, co-founder and president of Human Interactions. Dr Campbell has 25 years experience as a learning specialist and psychometrist.
