"Joy Luck Club" -- watched this during the laying around in the afternoon phase of the weekend. Really good despite being a sort of Lifetime tear-jerker sort of movie. Amy Tan's novel from which it is adapted is really strong storytelling, which gives the movie more to work with than most movies.
Prime Suspect 1 on PBS. Prime Suspect 2 starts next week. I can't think of a more compelling TV police procedural. The only American series that has anywhere near the grit is The Shield, but The Shield is really over the top, where Prime Suspect's ethical murk is a little more nuanced.
