Tonight on TV: today’s films December 19th

The Christmas week has officially begun, all the preparations are underway and so tonight we suggest you take a little break from the thousand commitments (and stress) with a nice mix of sofa, herbal tea, remote control and TV. While zapping you will come across many interesting films and we in particular point out a jewel like Le Mans ’66 – The great challenge (based on a true story) with Christian Bale and Matt Damon, but also the touching Stepmom with the extraordinary Julia Roberts and Susan Sarandon.

Instead, in the first run there is Michael Bay’s Ambulance with Jake Gyllenhaal.
