The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch Today -

Cinemax, Astro Ch 412, 8.25am This 2011 film re­counts the 1970s doc­u­men­tary se­ries that tailed the Loud fam­ily and rep­re­sented the first re­al­ity se­ries of its time. The film de­tails the Loud fam­ily’s some­times strained re­la­tion­ship with the pro­duc­ers of the show, who of­ten filmed with­out their con­sent or knowl­edge. Pat Loud (Diane Lane) and her hus­band Bill (Tim Rob­bins) find their mar­riage crum­bling, a fact which gets played out on tele­vi­sion, as Pat dis­cov­ers that her hus­band has been cheat­ing on her and con­fronts him. The film has gen­er­ally pos­i­tive re­views and was nom­i­nated for two Golden Globe Awards, so be sure to tune in to watch it.
