Hobson's Choice ( 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

(1954). Amusing British tale set in 1890s Manchester where a smug shoe store owner (Charles Laughton) gets his comeuppance when his eldest daughter (Brenda de Banzie) marries an uneducated but skilled shoemaker (John Mills) and they open a rival shoe shop. Directed by David Lean, the story of a wise daughter outsmarting her foolish dad has plenty of ironic humor, a zestful music score and a grandly comic performance from Laughton. Period sexism and romantic complications. (A-II -- adults and adolescents)  TCM (cable)




Our Brand Is Crisis ( 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm )

(2015) Lured out of seclusion by a duo of political operatives (Anthony Mackie and Ann Dowd), an emotionally fragile spin doctor (Sandra Bullock) with a mixed record in U.S. elections joins them in working for a Bolivian presidential candidate (Joaquim de Almeida) whose campaign is in free-fall. By securing an unlikely victory for her client, the devious image-maker hopes to win the latest round in her long-running feud with an even more unscrupulous American consultant (Billy Bob Thornton) who has similarly been imported to help elect a rival aspirant. An unstable mix of cynicism and simplistic idealism corrodes the entertainment value of director David Gordon Green's comedy, a fictionalized and satiric version of the real-life events recounted in filmmaker Rachel Boynton's eponymous 2005 documentary. Interludes of sleazy wordplay and bawdy visual humor make it fit for grownups only. Brief rear nudity, occasional sexual references, about a half-dozen uses of profanity, frequent rough and crude language, a couple of obscene gestures. (A-III -- adults) (R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.) HBO (cable)




The Temple Of The Stars ( 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm )

A look at the history of Spain's Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, the church that enshrines the remains of the Apostle St. James the Greater, and at the popular pilgrimage route that leads to it (TV-G -- general audience). EWTN (cable)

Gaslight ( 11:00 am - 1:00 pm )

(1944) Sleek thriller set in Victorian London where a rich young bride (Ingrid Bergman) is slowly being driven loony by her slick, greedy husband (Charles Boyer), until an old friend (Joseph Cotten) of her late aunt intervenes. Director George Cukor overplays the wife's passive acceptance of her mate's overbearing manipulations as she declines into a state of helplessness, but the contrived situation pays dividends after slowly building to its highly charged conclusion. Much menace. (A-II -- adults and adolescents). (Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America). TCM (cable)

 




The 33 ( 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm )

(2015) The compelling true story of a group of Chilean miners who spent 69 days trapped underground in 2010 becomes a mostly admirable but less than absorbing drama under the direction of Patricia Riggen. The film's wide focus takes in a number of those at risk -- most prominently their unofficial leader (Antonio Banderas) and their duped representative with management (Lou Diamond Phillips) -- as well as those trying to rescue them, including the country's earnest minister of mining (Rodrigo Santoro) and an expert engineer (Gabriel Byrne). But the overcrowded scene, which also features Juliette Binoche as the understandably aggressive spokeswoman for the anguished families, hinders the kind of detailed characterizations that would lead viewers to identify more deeply with the plight of the imperiled. The prayerful Christian faith that permeates the diggers' lives, both before and during their ordeal, fails to prevent one of them (Oscar Nunez) from carrying on an extramarital affair, a lapse ill-advisedly portrayed as a source of comic relief by screenwriter Mikko Alanne. Honorable themes highlighting corporate irresponsibility and the reconciling power of a life-threatening crisis remain undeveloped. A frivolous treatment of adultery, some mildly gory injuries, brief sexual talk, at least one use of profanity, a handful of crude and crass terms. ( A-III – adults). (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13). HBO (cable)




The Tragic Path Of Suicide ( 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm )

Ann Moloney and Christine Schmidt discuss ways to prevent suicide, particularly in children and young adults, by detailing the signs and symptoms of depression. (TV-G -- general audience). EWTN (cable)
