Comic Jordan Peele of Key & Peele fame makes his directorial debut with a surprisingly effective, full-blooded horror film, “Get Out.” Daniel Kaluuya plays a young black photographer who goes to meet his white girlfriend’s parents in rural suburbia, where things go horribly wrong. An effective social commentary as well as a potent creepfest, “Get Out” is this generation’s answer to “The Stepford Wives.”

 

David Oyelowo from “Selma” and Rosamund Pike from “Gone Girl” star in the true historical romance “A United Kingdom.” Oyelowo plays the heir to the throne of Botswana who creates international chaos in 1947 when he takes a white, British wife, played by Pike. It’s a handsomely produced, beautifully acted and involving drama.

 

“I Am Not Your Negro” is a compelling and penetrating documentary about the late author James Baldwin and his perspective on three men he knew well: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, who were all assassinated. It’s a sobering, resonant and timely work.

 

“The Girl with All the Gifts” is yet another zombie apocalypse flick, but this one is particularly smart and effective. Glenn Close and Gemma Arterton lead the strong acting ensemble, but newcomer Sennia Nanua steals the show as a child zombie who retains her emotions and an extremely high level of intelligence. It’s an interesting twist on the genre.

 

“Bitter Harvest” is a bitter disappointment. This romantic historical drama is set against the backdrop of Stalin’s suppression of Ukraine that led millions to starvation in the 1930s. It’s a ham-fisted and artificial entry that squanders its chance to bring this shocking story to a wide audience.

 

Also opening this week, “Rock Dog” is an animated offering about a music-loving pooch and “Collide” is an action thriller starring Felicity Jones that’s been sitting on the shelf for a few years.


Raoul Peck’s Oscar-nominated documentary “I Am Not Your Negro” is a compelling work about the late African-American writer James Baldwin and his relationship with three Civil Rights workers who were all assassinated: Medgar Evers, Malcom X and Martin Luther King. Using archived footage and the voice of Samuel L. Jackson to read Baldwin’s words, this is a very timely, resonant movie.

Executive Director Bruce Hartman and Curator of Education Karen Gerety Folk represent the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. Bruce was director of the JCCC Gallery of Art from its inception in 1990. Bruce is the Nerman Museum’s chief curator and oversees exhibition organization and manages and develops the college’s permanent art collection.

Public Art Review magazine named JCCC as one of the top 10 college campuses for public art in America, citing the artwork installed throughout the campus. The Nerman Museum has one of the top internationally acclaimed collections of emerging and established artists today, and we present many of the region’s most important exhibitions of leading-edge contemporary art. Admission is always free. This year we are celebrating our 10th anniversary!

Joel Barrett is an LGBTQ writer, speaker and mentor. I am a survivor of ex-gay therapy. Some call it conversion therapy, repairative therapy or just plan counseling, but the goals are the same: To eliminate or reduce homosexual desires and actions. Needless to say, it didn’t work.
I am a recovering fundamental Baptist. If you don’t know what a fundamental Baptist is, I can explain: We thought the Southern Baptists were liberal.
I was a Baptist pastor married to a woman living the midwest raising our three children. Yes, I spent over 15 years in ministry before exiting that line of work to focus completely on becoming fixing myself so I could save my marriage and live as a straight man. I always knew I was gay, but being gay wasn’t an option in the world I lived in so I kept trying to make it go away through church, prayer, scripture, and the pursuit of godliness because everyone told me that being gay was a sin and probably just about the worst sin anyone could commit.

Today I am happily married to my husband of over a decade. I share my colorful story with audiences everywhere to encourage them to live each day as their authentic, powerful and beautiful self.
