8 p.m. on HBO Movie: Just Mercy

Jamie Foxx re­ceived a Screen Ac­tors Guild Award nom­i­na­tion as best sup­port­ing ac­tor for his work in this fact-based 2019 le­gal drama, in which he plays Wal­ter McMil­lian, a Black prison in­mate on Death Row for the 1986 mur­der of Ronda Morrison, a white woman. McMil­lian’s case catches the at­ten­tion of ide­al­is­tic young Har­vard law grad­u­ate Bryan Steven­son (a top-billed Michael B. Jor­dan), who has teamed up with a kin­dred spirit (Brie Lar­son) to found the Equal Jus­tice Ini­tia­tive. Rob Mor­gan, Tim Blake Nel­son and Rafe Spall also star.

8 p.m. on BBCA An­i­mal Ba­bies

Nearly a quar­ter of our planet’s sur­face is cov­ered by moun­tains, chal­leng­ing ter­rain for an­i­mals to make their home. Even adult crit­ters don’t have an easy time on the sheer slopes and snow-cov­ered moun­tain­sides, but younger an­i­mals have it even harder. Among the beasts fea­tured are a clumsy gua­naco calf that’s ex­pected to stand up within min­utes of be­ing born and a young musk ox who barely es­capes the jaws of hun­gry wolves.

9 p.m. on HALL Movie: Fall­ing for Look Lodge

Noah (Jonathan Keltz), a hand­some worka­holic, re­al­izes he’s not do­ing a very good job plan­ning his sis­ter’s wed­ding, so he turns to Lily (Clark Backo) for some help com­plet­ing that ur­gent as­sign­ment in this 2020 ro­mance. Lily is ab­so­lutely de­ter­mined for the nup­tials to be a smash­ing suc­cess, so she spends more time than usual with this par­tic­u­lar client, try­ing to show him what re­ally mat­ters most in life. Chris Vi­o­lette and Kathryn Ko­hut also star.
