MISS POT­TER

8.30PM, 7TWO PG. 2006. The story of Beatrix Pot­ter (Re­nee Zell­weger) over­com­ing the sex­ist at­ti­tudes to­wards fe­male writ­ers. The beloved chil­dren’s book au­thor falls in love with her pub­lisher Nor­man Warne (Ewan McGre­gor) but the tale isn’t with­out tragedy.

BRAVE

7PM, SEVEN PG. 2012. Merida, a me­dieval Scot­tish princess ac­ci­den­tally turns the of­fer of a magic wish into a beastly curse that blights her fa­ther’s king­dom. Pro­duc­tion val­ues are first­class, but the sto­ry­telling of­ten plods and it lacks the “wow’’ fac­tor of Pixar’s Find­ing Nemo and WALL-E.

AMER­I­CAN PIE

8.30PM, 7MATE M. 1999. Four teenage boys make a pact to lose their vir­gin­ity as fast as they can. The film made names of its largely un­known cast, in­clud­ing Ja­son Biggs and Shan­non El­iz­a­beth, and also in­cludes the in­fa­mous pie scene. Alyson Han­ni­gan steals the movie with her tales from band camp.

Re­nee Zell­weger.
