TRUE GRIT

8.30PM, SBS M. 2010. A fresh take on the 1969 fea­ture film in which a 14-year-old girl (Hailee Ste­in­feld) en­lists the help of US mar­shal (Jeff Bridges) and a bounty hunter (Matt Damon) to help track down her fa­ther’s mur­derer (Josh Brolin). One of Joel and Ethan Coen’s most finely tuned, un­af­fected works. Just bril­liant.

10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU

8.45PM, 7FLIX PG. 1999. A teenage girl must find a date for her un­ruly sis­ter. This mod­ern work­ing of Shake­speare’s The Tam­ing of the Shrew launched Heath Ledger’s Hol­ly­wood ca­reer and gained a loyal fol­low­ing thanks to its clever script and cool char­ac­ters.

TI­TANIC

8.40PM, 9GEM M. 1997. The dizzy­ing blend of spec­tac­u­lar vi­su­als and old-time dra­matic ro­mance will never get old. An ab­so­lute tri­umph for di­rec­tor James Cameron, not to men­tion its en­dur­ing leads Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Jeff Bridges.
