Our pick for tonight is set in '60s Greece and focuses on a con artist (Viggo Mortensen), his wife (Kirsten Dunst) and a stranger (Oscar Isaac) who go on the run after becoming caught up in the death of a private detective.
Based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley), The Two Faces of January was not a hit at the box office upon its release in 2014.
It's a shame as the movie's gorgeous locations and period detail, excellent performances and surprising twists make it well worth seeking out.

Enigma - RTÉ2 - 11.45pm
Set during World War II, this espionage thriller is about a young British genius (Dougray Scott) frantically racing against time to crack an enemy code and solve a mystery surrounding the woman (Saffron Burrows) he loves.
