Leaving him in a difficult situation to say the least, he has to get back to shore on a boat with a whole host of problems.

In this, Robert Redford provides another moving portrayal in, what is turning out to be, a critics’ favourite. Not one to be missed!

Following all the madness of Indiana Jones, our next film of the week is a more heart warming affair. Walter Mitty has a boring anonymous life working as a photo manager at Time magazine. His escape is through the medium of day-dreams where heroism, action and romance are well and truly alive. When an important negative goes missing, his job is put on the line sparking him to embark on an adventure to track down an elusive photographer.

The perfect tonic for the end of the weekend, Ben Stiller will leave you mystified.

Sunday 23rd March at 8pm: Last Vegas

Last VegasWe leave you laughing this week with comedy Last Vegas. Featuring an enviable list of Hollywood heavyweights, mainly Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, it is simple, honest cinematic goodness.

Four old friends gather to throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas for their one friend who has yet to remain single. Need we say more? It’s all the ingredients for a thoroughly enjoyable watch, so don’t miss out.
