Tonight on TV: today’s films Wednesday 23 November

It’s mid-week and we’re about to start the countdown for the weekend, but in the meantime let’s enjoy some healthy relaxation once another busy day is over. Tonight the free-to-air and satellite TV channels offer us numerous films, some unmissable such as Judy with a very good Renée Zellweger in the role of the legendary Judy Garland (a role for which she won the Academy Award) or the thriller Inheritance starring Lily Collins.

Then there are the first TV shows such as The Northman, an epic film about the Vikings with Alexander Skarsgård, Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicole Kidman.
