night and let's talk a little bit about things that people can do this weekend because they're stuck at home for maybe the fifth or sixth weekend and there's there's more to come here and we can talk about things are having on regular television and then of course the over the top stuff as well what do you like well a couple of quick things I wanted to mention though that's good for calving the bears are working on a trade they're looking to trade Mitch Trubisky for reliable internet connection so at forty five they had never regional drum machine there and I know I do not have my drum machine yeah click next time and you know what and I have to mention this to to all my old all of our the learning and Gavin and and Rone everybody that my tax and it would been playing the angels in California tonight like I like to look at the schedule think about Lucas G. lido on the mound against Mike trout in a couple of hours but since that's not happening we're going to segue to our home entertainment choices rolling to start off with one of it's going to be an H. B. L. causing a lot of people of course do have HBO or HBO go in their part of their cable package and there's a movie this is a movie not a series so it's a one off it's you know an hour and forty five minutes it's called bad education now you might remember this in the early two thousands there was this incredible scandal on Long Island the Roslyn school district was ranked one of the top five in the country so property values are going up the community and this guy named Frank the song with the star school superintendent he was really turning everybody you know under this great school system I'm in the meantime he was living out of double life but a triple live and he and his number two were embezzling a total of eleven point two million dollars from the school system for Vegas trips and Hamptons homes and they got away with it forever and Chile high school journalists at the beacon the school paper started looking into like what what are all these bills for repairs on the roof is leaking so the movie's got bad education and Hugh Jackman plays Frank the sum you Jacqueline plays he's perfectly cast year because this guy you just don't use of handsome guy always had beautiful suits you know was very commanding and everybody thought it was a way to work turns out maybe he really wasn't you just had like a photo of his dead wife in the office if you Jacqueline gives one of the best performances of his career as this guy so this is very much in the vein of movies like the big short and I Tonya and American hustle where they take a real life scandal and turned into a great fictional movie I love this film three and a half stars for bad education and it's a single film this is not a this is not a situation where you have to sit around and wait for the next episode now I need to know if if it's a major movie I mean it starts you Jacqueline Allison Janney academy award winner and she places number two in the office and she's like she's got you know so she's like with the number two person in the school superintendent's office right so you know she's making a a a reasonable middle class salary and she's got like a million dollar home in the Hamptons well okay so it's interesting because I've seen the commercial for this and I'm like this totally does look like a Hollywood release was it recently attended is that I'm I'm honestly not sure it might have been an HBO original movie from the start but it certainly plays like a full feature length film and at the end it is the kind of star because it's not a giant superhero movie it's ME it's perfect for your comfort living room viewing if you and if you love just it's just a great old fashioned movie you know about it about this scandal and it's it's really funny and it's outrageous at the heart of it is because you Jack man who'd like you know he even goes it gets a little bit talk at one point I'm the school dine they're using the company credit cards like nobody's business and this week it's really incredible especially it's got that classic epilogue and we see what happened to the real life people in this movie because of all the characters here all the major characters are based on real life figures and who really did the stuff you see in this world it's interesting as Hugh Jackman is now become a character actor he is one of the best looking leading man most talented leading men in Hollywood in decades right you can do everything the same dance he's got the whole thing going and and is it is a nuanced comedian he can do drama and now he's sort of shifting before almost before his time into a guy who is now you just want to take those kind of rough edged character parts I think you know he he did it because he did the you know he did do the romantic comedies and dramas and stuff but I think he could do that in his sleep and as you mentioned he's a real renaissance man you check with the kind of singular count on he would be a major movie star in the thirties or the fifties or the seventies you know he has that kind of wide ranging talent but I think he I think you're absolutely right I think what draws him to roles like this is it something different because he's not you know he's playing a guy at first watch to be like oh yeah typical you Jack when he's the hero school superintendent the ladies are all fawning all over him he's got this connection with the students but it's all a sham it's all a con job to the point where you know I don't give too much away but their trips to Vegas and things that happen where you're like how did he get away with this well for what now it is good to record this because it does totally looks like at they get Adam McKay because it it it's got that feeling like you know you got from the big short you got from those other kinds of movies that that had this it almost myopic view where you get to look inside the souls of these people are doing the wrong thing yeah the the directors a guide by the name of a Cory Finley AT and I honestly you know do not know a lot of Cory Finley's work out but it's clearly influenced by some of the films we've talked about because it has you know almost as breezy style to it early on in kind of a a soundtrack that's kind of you know like you're going along for the ride and then you know the the music changes and the total look of the film changes things get more and more serious but that it's just a terrific screenplay as well the screenplay was actually written by a guy who was a middle school student in the district at the time oh my god which is really cool too you know so he was like an eighth grader something at the time of this scandal so he wrote this it's a fictional screenplay but it's clearly yeah he's clearly a guy would know the territory and they do a beautiful job in the film you know you feel that certain kinda Long Island working upper middle class Allison Janney got the accent down as those you Jack you know you believe that they were born and bred there right this is not New York City this is yet we completely Long Island and of course this is not dissimilar from the Long Island Lolita era of Long Island real long on was really just sort of known more for stupid scandal it was an absolute and and another actor who's not who's carved out a really big guy cool career as a character actor ray Romano who's seen in movies like the Irishman and he plays the school board president here who's perfected this year he's remodels great and he didn't know about it but it's also like how did you not know about yeah because nobody wanted to ask any questions because the test scores were through the roof and as I mentioned the realtors were always sending gift baskets the Frank the sounds like all these people were moving from all over the northeast the eastern part of the country to live there because the public school system was getting these kids in the harbor to yell and they never he never he didn't fudge the test scores he really was that good of an educator Frank the sound guy played by Hugh Jackman I just thought maybe he should have a few more Bucks for herself which we run as Mercedes going to school at you know if Lori Laughlin had known about this she would not be going to jail that was that's the one thing when I was in the second bad education H. B. O. premieres this Sunday evening all right and we'll be there all right let's talk about that let's talk about the Jordan I keep going to Jordan show it's it's not the lap dance there are a lot of it is not going to be about Jordan in the two episodes we're gonna see this week so we'll talk about that and other things that you can watch on Netflix and things are not comparing Richard Roeper is here if you got a phone call to get the question three one two nine eight one seven two hundred you've got something that you absolutely love on television and you want to tell us about it you can do that as well three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred let us in now check in with Lauren after here's the traffic but you by the Illinois department of transportation the south shore line has announced that all monthly passes purchased for may will be valid for the entire month of June due to the extension of the stay at home order starting tonight at ten CTA southbound red line trains will not stop at Granville Thorndale four Brynmawr until four AM Monday.

"Stints our last testing update the Illinois National Guard really truly an amazing group the Illinois National Guard has opened up a second state. Run drive through testing facility in Mclean County yesterday joining our Harwood Heights community based testing site in northwest Chicago and the three federal. Hhs sites in Bolingbrook northlake and Joliet our state run sites have been a huge success and in addition to our McLean county site. We're investigating additional areas around the state to launch potential drive through locations symptomatic first responders healthcare workers seniors and all people with underlying health conditions will be able to visit these sites still due to the federal government requiring federal personnel representation. At our to state drive-thrus. We remain tied to a two hundred and fifty test cap at each of these locations. We know there's greater need at our longer running Harwood Heights site We've been hitting two hundred and fifty tests by just the early afternoon and having to turn people away we'd like to be able to test more than four hundred people a day at these sites and think that we can. We have the capacity to do. So so we're pushing the federal government to change their requirements and allow us to test more than two hundred and fifty people were turning people away that we shouldn't have to and we asked the federal government to remove their restriction. We're also pressuring the federal government on the return timelines of these tests. The private labs contracted by the federal government are taking four to seven days and sometimes even up to ten days to turn around results. That is far too long. We're doing it much faster in the state of Illinois with the capacity that we have of course we can't just test we have to treat an order to treat people we have to increase hospital bed capacity in the daily updates over the next few days. I'll talk more about our acquisition of PP personal protective equipment and our work to increase hospital capacity around the state of course hospital capacity means nothing without the heroes who staff these facilities healthcare workers and first responders are stepping up working day and night and they are saving lives. So I WANNA end this With a message for Illinois landlords who lease to our medical professionals. We're seeing news stories out of other states about nurses being thrown out of apartments or denied the ability to rent their apartments out of fear of exposure by tenants. We're not yet specifically. We've not yet specifically heard of instances like that here in Illinois but let me be very clear that will not be tolerated in our state. I want to remind everyone that evictions are prohibited during this disaster to begin with but I also want to make sure that landlords are not inappropriately terminating leases so let me say this here in Illinois. We are fortunate to have a very strong community of attorneys that are ready to fight for nurses and for all healthcare workers to make sure that their rights are protected. If any healthcare workers encounter this situation they should immediately contact the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights. Under law. I Systems. Thank you now. I'd like to turn it over to Dr Zeke from the Department of Public Health today I am reporting one thousand one hundred five new cases and eighteen additional deaths. They're more they are now more than forty five hundred cases in Illinois including sixty five deaths as the governor mentioned additional testing can help us better understand the amount of virus circulating in our community..

"Life got during his false. Every day drills. There's Austin hour shifts. Yes anyway presidential a little while you're so right. Healthcare workers are being overworked. There's no doubt about it They're doing heroic amazing work every day And they do deserve a break as best we can give them They're so dedicated their dedicated in non crisis times. I must say and now they're working. You know even harder So you know. We expanded the eligibility to work in the healthcare field to people who had recently retired who we can give them back their licenses. nearly immediately and those who may have left the profession for some other profession. We need them back. We're encouraging them to come back. And we've seen hundreds already talking to us about coming back filling out forms and so on And so in that way we're trying to fill up the need for more healthcare workers so we can alleviate some of the work on the front lines we're also at the edges at the borders of the state were allowing people who may work as health care workers in other states but may live in Illinois or they may live in on the other side of the border And maybe willing to work in Illinois we WANNA make sure they get licensed in Illinois Nsa. Reciprocity for those folks We want to be able to move healthcare workers to where they're most needed so we're doing our best to try to alleviate the congestion. Let's say that that is weighing upon the healthcare industry. The healthcare workforce today. And we'll keep looking for ways to do that. Oh Yeah I'm sorry. The National Guard you did ask about the National Guard. They have many medical professionals that they're bringing to bear here Right now we've got many of them focused on these drive through testing centers but they are so versatile they're really tremendous. Maybe general would like to speak to the tremendous individuals working in healthcare at the National Guard and well and that's a great question you know. It's a balancing act For us so in the National Guards called up. We're actually coming out of the communities so some of the doctors some of the physicians that we've called four to support the drive through Or actually coming out with some the hospital.
