The Kids Are All Right 7.30pm, Show­time Pre­miere ★★★ MA. 2010. Richly drawn, Os­car-nom­i­nated dram­edy with An­nette Ben­ing and Julianne Moore as a cou­ple whose teen chil­dren (Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutch­er­son) lo­cate their bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther (Mark Ruf­falo), re­defin­ing re­la­tion­ships within the fam­ily. The in­die na­ture of this film takes it to heights the main­stream couldn’t. Movie of the Week Cyrano de Bergerac 8.30pm, SBS TWO ★★★★ G. 1990. Splen­did ver­sion of the time­honoured play about the great­est poet-swords­man in all France, whose love for the fair Rox­anne is thwarted by his huge nose. When Rox­anne falls for an unimag­i­na­tive hunk, the poet gets his chance to pen his love to her in let­ters – though his ri­val signs off on them. Anne Bro­chet. Sex and the City 9pm, Gem ★★★ M. 2008. What’s to say about Sex and the City? If you love the se­ries you’ll love the fea­ture-length adap­ta­tion. If you hate it, this won’t change your opinion. Sarah Jes­sica Parker, Kim Cat­trall and Cyn­thia Nixon play sassy women of a cer­tain age. They rep­re­sent their gen­er­a­tion, which is why so many women love them. The Din­ner Game 10.55pm, SBS TWO ★★★ M. 1998. Snooty yup­pie friends de­vise a din­ner party game where each, in turn, in­vites a so­cially in­ept guest to amuse the oth­ers. Thierry Lher­mitte plans to bring the mal­ad­justed Jac­ques Villeret but events con­spire other­wise and, in the space of an evening, his guest vir­tu­ally de­stroys his life. Hi­lar­i­ous French com­edy.
