Match Point

BBC1, 12AM

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Television -

A ten­nis in­struc­tor be­comes en­gaged to the sis­ter of a wealthy up­per-class client, but is soon at­tracted to his girl­friend, a se­duc­tive Amer­i­can ac­tress. The pair strug­gle to sup­press their feel­ings, but are even­tu­ally drawn into a clan­des­tine af­fair – with tragic reper­cus­sions. Woody Allen’s ac­cus­tomed an­nual movie will prob­a­bly never again hit the heights of his early master­pieces, but once in a while he still comes up with a gen­uine win­ner and does so here in what could even­tu­ally come to be viewed as one of the finest thrillers of its time. Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Jonathan Rhys Mey­ers and Brian Cox star.

Court in the act: Scar­lett Jo­hans­son and Jonathan Rhys Mey­ers star.
