Tonight in HD: December 2

SoHo Highlight: Life Support (Sky 10, 8.30, 5.1) Oscar-nominee Queen Latifah stars in the story of one woman’s struggle to find meaning in misfortune: HIV-positive Ana channels her energy and regret over past drug addiction by giving back to her community working for an AIDS outreach group. “Watching Latifah’s performance is the single greatest pleasure of watching this movie,” said the New York Post of her Golden Globe-winning turn. What the Los Angeles Times found remarkable was how Life Support “avoids every pitfall of the standard issue-based TV film and, indeed, of most TV films, period”. However, the New York Times thought otherwise: “A movie that proudly takes to the soapbox promoting AIDS awareness … Queen Latifah and a first-rate cast — including Anna Deavere Smith and two children of Diana Ross, Evan Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross — collaborate on a glamorously produced neo- after-school special about the way the virus has hit women, many of them married and monogamous.” ✭✭✭✭
