The Nun’s Story ( 2:15 pm - 5:00 pm )

(1959) Sent by her religious community to be a nurse in the Belgian Congo, a young nun (Audrey Hepburn) resists her feelings of love for the doctor (Peter Finch) with whom she works, returns to Belgium and, after struggling with the routine of convent life, leaves for the world beyond the wall. Sensitively directed by Fred Zinnemann, the fact-based story focuses on the interior conflict between the nun’s idealism and her growing sense of her own needs as an individual. Convincing portrayal of religious life as a vocation requiring more than good intentions. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)




Getaway ( 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm )

(2013) Senseless car chase flick about a former racer (Ethan Hawke) whose wife (Rebecca Budig) has been kidnapped by a criminal mastermind (Jon Voight) and who must obey the villain's orders to get her back alive. The instructions involve using a stolen, souped-up vehicle to cause mayhem on the streets of Sofia, Bulgaria, to facilitate a bank heist. Along the way, the auto’s teenage owner (Selena Gomez) gets entangled in the situation, first as an unwilling passenger and later as a computer-savvy partner in the driver's efforts to foil his adversary. Director Courtney Solomon places his protagonist in the morally shaky position of endangering hordes of innocent bystanders and innumerable pursuing police officers for the sake of safeguarding a single life. But ethical considerations take a back seat as the wheels squeal and the windshields shatter -- and as viewers run a gauntlet of crashes, collisions, and illogical plot developments. Much action violence, a few uses of profanity, considerable crude and crass language, and an obscene gesture. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) HBO (cable)




Metropolis ( 7:00 pm - 9:45 pm )

(1927) Silent classic of a future society ruled by an aristocracy living in luxury above ground while the workers suffer miserably underground, comforted only by the religious faith of a young woman (Brigitte Helm) in whose likeness a sinister scientist (Rudolf Klein-Rogge) fashions a robot inciting the workers to rebel but all ends in reconciliation. Directed by Fritz Lang, the story's melodramatic turns and woolly finale may be dated but not its vivid pictorial sense, grandly expressionistic décor, and theme of social justice. Bleak picture of exploited workers, stylized violence, and some sexual innuendo. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)




Mother Dolores Hart: From Hollywood To Holy Vows ( 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm )

A three-part biography of screen star-turned-nun (and, subsequently, prioress) Mother Dolores Hart. (TV-G -- general audience) EWTN (cable)




Pacific Rim ( 9:00 pm - 11:15 pm )

(2013) Manmade robots battle alien creatures redolent of Godzilla in an escapist sci-fi spectacle ideal for the summer movie season. When gigantic monsters called Kaiju emerge from a breach at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, the nations of the world join forces to build machines dubbed Jaegers to battle the destructive intruders. The Jaegers, guided by human pilots (Charlie Hunnam among them), are the planet’s only hope. Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro fashions visual effects that often trigger awe, while weaving together the doomsday scenario, co-written by Travis Beacham, with enough humor and noble human impulses to make us think the movie is doing more than exploiting our fascination with monsters, machines and mayhem. Much intense but bloodless sci-fi violence between robots and alien creatures, fleeting sexual banter, and occasional crude and profane language. Possibly acceptable for older teens. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) Cinemax (cable)

Knights Of Peter Claver And Ladies Auxiliary Solemn Opening Convention Mass Of Thanksgiving ( 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm )

The opening Mass for the 99th Annual National Convention of the Knights of Peter Claver and the 84th Annual National Convention of the Knights of Peter Claver Ladies Auxiliary. (TV-G -- general audience) EWTN (cable)

Wild Strawberries ( 9:00 pm - 10:45 pm )

(1957) During the day on which he is to be awarded an honorary degree from a nearby university, a 78-year-old retired scholar (Victor Sjostrom in a masterful performance) is visited with dreams and reveries about his past life, especially his failures and disappointments in personal relationships. Swedish director Ingmar Bergman brilliantly develops the man's interior journey from pangs of regret and anxiety to a refreshing sense of peace and reconciliation summed up in blissful images of his happy youth. One of the great films about aging that touches universal chords in all viewers. (A-III -- adults) (Not rated) TCM (cable)

Lords Of War ( 4:55 pm - 7:00 pm )

(2005) Thought-provoking, if at times contrived, morality play about an opportunistic and morally bankrupt Ukrainian emigre (Nicolas Cage) who rises from small-time gunrunner to international arms dealer, while living a double life as a respectable family man, all the while staying one step ahead of his rivals, his ruthless clients and the law, that is, until his own conscience catches up with him. By turns action drama and black comedy (neither completely successful), the film's serious social commentary and anti-violence themes are saddled with message-heavy melodrama and standard action cliches that bog down the otherwise effective narrative. Strong images of violence, sexual situations with partial nudity, recurring drug content, some racial stereotyping, and pervasive rough and crude language. (L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling) (R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian) Showtime (cable)
