TV movie recommendations

  • Mrs Brown (1997) Sat 8.30pm BBC2

    Great performances by Judi Dench as the Queen of England and Billy Connolly as her horseman.
  • Walk The Line (2005) Sat 9.00pm CH4

    Biopic of the life of Johnny Cash. Great intro sequence in Falsom prison, superb chemistry with Reece Witherspoon as country music singer June Carter, and great performances of the hit songs,
  • 28 Weeks Later (2007) Sun 10.00pm CH4

    Sequel to 28 Days Later. Tense opening sequence with survivors in a remote farmhouse, gripping scenes of panic and chaos as the virus takes hold again, and spooky manoeuvres through the darkened London Underground.
  • The Escapist (2008) Mon 11.30pm CH4

    Gritty prison drama with the escape cut and interspersed with the prior events. Some nasty, viscious characters and ingenious plotting juxtaposed with a desperate dash for freedom against all odds.
