M. 2001. Lon­don pub­li­cist Re­nee Zell­weger, chron­i­cles her er­ratic life in a voiceover di­ary as she de­ter­mines to smoke and drink less and get her chaotic love life into some sort of shape. Quite funny romp based on He­len Field­ing’s pop­u­lar book. Amer­i­can Zell­weger makes a good fist of the ti­tle role, as does Hugh Grant as her creepy se­ducer. Colin Firth. 9.30pm, Gem

M. 1996. Knock­out crime thriller that re­de­fined the genre. Po­lice chief Frances McDor­mand in­ves­ti­gates a murder that leads her to hap­less car sales­man Wil­liam H. Macy’s in­com­pe­tent plan to kid­nap his wife. Brims over with quirky touches, oddly en­dear­ing lan­guage and mem­o­rable char­ac­ters. Don’t miss it.
