Or you could watch one (or two) of these movies airing on TV this evening.
Lantana - AMC - 9pm
Our pick for tonight is this 2001 Australian movie focusing on the relationships of four couples that unravel as a woman's body is discovered in the lantana bushes of suburban Sydney.
Featuring amongst its ensemble cast actors such as Anthony LaPaglia, Barbara Hershey and Geoffrey Rush, what could be a standard mystery in Lantana quickly evolves into an authentic, emotional, cathartic and gripping exploration of the everyday secrets that the inhabitants of a small town keep from one another.
Comparable in its structure to the multi-narrative storytelling of classics like Magnolia and Short Cuts, Lantana currently holds an impressive 91% Rotten Tomatoes score.
