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.
