8.40pm, Showtime Premiere
M. 2010. Inspirational tale follows the real-life story of Betty Anne Waters, who dedicates her life to overturning her brother’s murder conviction. Fine performance from Hilary Swank as Waters, who puts herself through high school, college and law school in what becomes an 18-year quest. Sam Rockwell, Minnie Driver. 9.30pm, Go!
M. 1998. Gritty thrills and spills to be found in this tale of a former US intelligence agent, on a mission to find a mysterious package wanted by both the Irish and the Russians. Directed by John Frankenheimer, it starts slow but the action builds to feature of the best car chases ever captured for the big screen. Must see. Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Natascha Mcelhone. 9.40pm, SBS2
M. 2008. In the near future, the US has sealed itself off from Mexico physically but Mexican labourers can earn money by getting implants that allow them to control drone workers in the US. You can also sell your memories to those with a vicarious interest. Fascinating though low budget sci-fi from Mexico that trades in ideas rather than action. Luis Fernando Pena. 11pm, SBS ONE
M. 2004. Graphic tale of a young Columbian who becomes a drug mule, carrying heroin to the USA, in an effort to alleviate her poverty. The film’s linchpin is Moreno’s spellbinding performance. Catalina Sandino Moreno.
Nathan Joliffe, Jason Akermanis, David Hasselhoff, Vince Sorrenti, Ben Dark and Ian ‘‘Dicko’’ Dickson.
