FILMS OF THE WEEK
The Green Mile Sunday, TV3, 9pm Based on a non- horror story by Stephen King, this moving supernatural drama stars Tom Hanks as Paul Edgecombe, a brow- beaten prison guard whose life is about to be changed by the giant John Coffey ( Michael Clarke Duncan, ABOVE with Hanks) who, despite his conviction as a child killer, appears to be a gentle soul. Coffey also displays miraculous healing powers, and as Edgecombe and his colleagues get to know him, they realise he could never commit a crime and fight to clear his name. David Morse, James Cromwell and Sam Rockwell also star. Breakfast at Tiffany’s Tuesday, Sky Movies Classics, 6pm They just don’t make them like this anymore. Audrey Hepburn ( BELOW) is at her radiant best in this muchloved adaptation of Truman Capote’s novella. She plays Holly Golightly ( a role originally intended for, believe it or not, Marilyn Monroe), a seemingly happy, freespirited young woman whose unusual lifestyle attracts the attentions of an aspiring writer ( George Peppard) living in her apartment block. However, as he gets to know her better, Holly’s mask begins to slip and he realises that her chirpiness is a façade hiding a colourful and not altogether cheerful past. Mickey Rooney strikes the only sour note in a very non- PC performance as Holly’s angry Japanese neighbour. The Bourne Supremacy Friday, RTÉ2, 9.30pm The second film in the Bourne franchise inspired by Robert Ludlum’s novels once again stars Matt Damon as the amnesiac assassin. This time, his efforts to live a quiet life are ruined when he’s wrongly accused of wrecking a disastrous CIA operation and must fight to clear his name – and save his own life.
