8.30PM, FOX­TEL MAS­TER­PIECE ★★★ Ralph Fi­ennes (mak­ing his de­but as direc­tor) takes one of Shake­speare’s leas­t­un­der­stood plays, and drags it kick­ing, scream­ing and bleed­ing into the present day. The set­ting is Rome 2011, where a vi­cious mil­i­tary strong­man (Fi­ennes) turns against his peo­ple and sides with the en­emy (led by Ger­ard But­ler). Serves up some food for thought about the bit­ter state of play in con­tem­po­rary Euro­pean pol­i­tics.
