WOMEN MAKE FILM: A NEW ROAD MOVIE THROUGH CINEMA
TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET
This is Night 12, almost the end, of TCM’s Women Make Film documentary series. This week, the movies shown after the documentary are the biggest draw, so stay tuned. They include Zelda Barron’s 1989 film Shag, a romantic comedy-drama set in 1963 and starring Phoebe Cates and Bridget Fonda (9:15 p.m. ET, pictured). And Wednesday morning, the film treasures continue at 7:30 a.m. ET with 1992’s Orlando, Sally Potter’s take on the Virginia Woolf story about a mercurial young nobleman, starring Tilda Swinton – whose narration, by the way, opened the Women in Film series with charm and elegance. And finally, at 9:15 a.m. ET Wednesday, there’s 1983’s Yentl, directed by and starring Barbra Streisand.
