NINE, Fri­day, 11.10pm, MA15+ ( 1994)

Di­rec­tor Barry Levin­son ( Rain Man) re­ceived a lot of pub­lic­ity for his classy de­con­struc­tion of sex­ual ha­rass­ment bound­aries. Michael Dou­glas plays a com­puter engi­neer and fam­ily man who is sex­u­ally ha­rassed by his new boss Demi Moore ( pic­tured). When he re­jects her ad­vances, she turns on him. Darkly comic in many ways, the only way out for Dou­glas is a hi- tech vir­tual re­al­ity show­down – the sex­ist adage “it’s a man’s world” comes to mind in many of the film’s great ironies. Un­ex­pect­edly smart and play­ful.
