11.30PM, SBS AV. 2009. A wilful French woman refuses to give up her coffee plantation in Africa despite war and racial tensions that threaten to cause chaos. Beautifully photographed, tense and utterly depressing. Stars France Isabelle Huppert and Christopher Lambert.
1PM, NINE M, 1990. A demented advertising copywriter can’t stand the ads he’s forced in to writing so he decides to write some that are offensive instead. Naturally, he then ends up institutionalised. Dated and not very funny at all. Stars Dudley Moore and Daryl Hannah.
9.30PM, NITV M. 1997. Based on a true story. In 1839, a group of African slaves is tried for mutiny after taking control of a ship. Heartfelt without sinking into preachiness. Stars the always-brilliant Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins and Anna Paquin.
