SPY - Film4 - 11.20pm

THE LOST BOYS - TCM - 11.40pm

A sleepy town finds themselves under siege by a group of vampires. One of the campest movies ever made, and that is why it is so beloved.

TULLY - Film4 - 1.40am

Our pick for the night is for all you nightowls out there (or for anyone who might have the ability to record it and then watch it at a more reasonable hour tomorrow).

Charlize Theron is a new mother finding it difficult and in need of help, when a new nanny (played by Mackenzie Davis) magically appears at her front door, providing the assistance she so desperately wants.

With the help of the nanny, Theron's character also rediscovers her passion for her own life, for her husband, and for everything she thought she might have lost by becoming a mother. A funny, tragic drama.
