M. 2009. White woman who has an af­fair with a black base­ball player be­comes preg­nant. Though the player at first re­fuses to be­come in­volved, af­ter the birth he sues for cus­tody on the grounds a white mother would find it hard to raise a mixed-race child. Based on a real life case and typ­i­cal telepic fare. 8.30pm, Movie One M. 2010. Based on an in­spir­ing true story, house­wife Penny Chen­ery takes over her fa­ther’s rac­ing busi­ness and de­spite her in­ex­pe­ri­ence, helps the thor­ough­bred Sec­re­tariat to win the 1973 Triple Crown. Ran­dall Wal­lace di­rects cast which in­clude Diane Lane and John Malkovich. 9.30pm, Eleven

PG. 2006. Monastery cook Jack Black, en­am­oured with the lovely sis­ter Ana de la Reguara, and anx­ious to achieve more in life, moon­lights as a su­per­hero masked wrestler. Masked wrestling is pop­u­lar in Mex­ico and this odd com­edy milks that for a while. Apart from Black, al­most ev­ery­one is se­ri­ous. Won’t be ev­ery­body’s cuppa. 9.30pm, SBS TWO

AV. 2008. Stark, grim look at the Byzan­tine world of the mafia in Italy seen through the eyes of peo­ple in­volved with them. As each tale un­folds, mur­der­ous ret­ri­bu­tion is al­ways threat­en­ing and fre­quently hap­pens. Played out mainly around the con­fines of a mas­sive public hous­ing es­tate it leaves a melan­choly mes­sage for those hop­ing that or­gan­ised crime can be abol­ished. Nur­ju­man Ikhtim­bayev, Bakhtiar Khoja.
