09:00 Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
Prod Year 2002 - Sandra Bullock stars as Sidda Lee Walker, a New York playwright who opens a can of emotional worms with her estranged, boozy mother, Vivi (Ellen Burstyn), when she discusses her painful childhood and particularly Vivi's less-than-enviable mothering skills in a Time magazine article.

Coming to the rescue of the relationship are Necie (Shirley Knight), Caro (Maggie Smith), and Teensy (Fionnula Flanagan), a trio of bickering women, who, along with Vivi, formed a secret society of feminist empowerment and friendship 60 years earlier that they dubbed the "Ya-Ya Sisterhood." After years of mother-daughter tension, Siddalee receives a scrapbook detailing the wild adventures of the "Ya-Yas", her mother's girlhood friends.
11:00 Doctor Zhivago
Prod Year 1965 - David Lean's truly epic account of Boris Pasternak's stirring love story set during the Russian Revolution deservedly won five Oscars.

Prod Year 1981 - Warren Beatty, who won an Oscar for Best Director, also stars in this sweeping romantic epic based on truth. He plays John Reed, the American journalist whose communist ideals drew him into a relationship with fellow writer Louise Bryant (Diane Keaton). Set against the backdrop of the Russian Revolution, history and politics drive the plot but the movie's power comes from its impressive scope and superbly drawn characters.
22:30 A Farewell to Arms
Prod Year 1957 - Rock Hudson stars as a hospitalised World War One ambulance driver who falls in love with Jennifer Jones' nurse. Hudson is at his steely best and the action sequences - particularly a snowbound retreat - are quite stunning.
