I’m planning on watching The Castle, Bernard and Doris, and the Olympics
One of my favourite movies is on TV One at 8.30pm tonight: The Castle. It’s so delightfully painful to watch, that you can’t help but love it! If you haven’t seen it, watch it; and if you have, watch it again. “$450 for jousting sticks? Tell him he’s dreamin.”
There’s also a movie on Soho at 8.30pm called Bernard and Doris. It stars Susan Sarandon and Ralph Fiennes and tells the story of the twilight years of tobacco billionairess Doris Duke and her relationship with her gay butler, to whom she left her entire fortune.
I’m quite excited that the athletics begin tonight at the Olympics. It starts at 8.50pm on SKY Sport 4 and this first session features the women’s heptathlon, triple jump, 100m and 400m, and the men’s shotput, 400m hurdles, hammer throw and 3000m steeplechase. It’s also the finals of the men’s single scull, quadruple scull and pairs, and the women’s double scull in rowing tonight on SKY Sport 6 from 8.25pm. Nerve-wracking! Go Kiwis!
