1712 Film choice

Cloud Atlas (2012) HHHHH Sky Premiere, 10pm

The Wachowski siblings - creators of 'The Matrix' - team up with 'Run Lola Run' helmer Tom Twyker for this sprawling, ambitious, flawed but always compelling adaptation of Cork-based author David Mitchell's "unfilmable" novel.

A great cast - Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving and Jim Broadbent -- criss-cross characters, race, time and gender in a six-story, 600-year-long epic, from the 19th century slave trade to an atomised post-apocalyptic future.

The film certainly isn't for everyone -- as many viewers would reward it one star, but it's well worth seeing.
