Moonstruck - BBC Two - 10.40pm

Our pick for tonight is this 1987 romantic comedy-drama revolving around a bookkeeper (Cher) from Brooklyn in New York who finds herself in a difficult situation when she falls for the brother (Nicolas Cage) of the man (Danny Aiello) she has agreed to marry.

Directed by the great Norman Jewison (In the Heat of the Night) and boasting a 93% Rotten Tomatoes score, Moonstruck remains a classic of its sub-genre thanks to Cage and Cher's palpable chemistry and a screenplay full of gem lines by John Patrick Shanley (Doubt).
