Big screen

Opening Friday

The Best Man Holiday (R): Old flames, ancient rivalries and buried hatchets all rise to the surface when a group of friends (including Terrence Howard, Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Regina Hall and Morris Chestnut) reunites over the Christmas holiday for the first time in 15 years in this sequel to 1999’s The Best Man.

Dallas Buyers Club (R): Matthew McConaughey is poised to land a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance as Ron Woodroof, the cowboy who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1985 and given 30 days to live, then resorted to tracking down alternative — and illegal — medical treatments from around the world. Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto co-star for director Jean-Marc Vallee (C.R.A.Z.Y., Café de Flore).

Kill Your Darlings (R): Before they became icons of the Beat generation, the young Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe,) Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) and William Burroughs (Ben Foster) were brought together in 1944 after being implicated in a murder by a classmate (Dane DeHaan). Elizabeth Olsen, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Jason Leigh round out the cast for first-time director John Krokidas.

Rene Rodriguez

Small screen

Killing Kennedy (8 p.m. Sunday. National Geographic Channel): A dramatization of the best-selling book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. For full review, see page 1M.

The Longest Day. (4 p.m. Monday. AMC): Veterans Day is a pretty good time to remember the bloody Allied invasion of France that marked the beginning of the end of World War II. This sweeping 1962 account of the battle has an all-star cast that includes everybody from Richard Burton to John Wayne, was nominated for an Oscar and has lost none of its power.

American Experience: JFK — Like No Other. (9 p.m. Monday, WPBT-PBS 2): A sober two-part documentary — it concludes in the same time slot Tuesday — on the life and presidency of John F. Kennedy. For full review, see page 1M.

Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth. HBO. (8 p.m. Saturday, HBO): Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson's raw one-man show, directed by Spike Lee, comes to television.

Everglades City put on a weekend-long celebration when the Tamiami Trail opened 80 years ago this week, on April 25th, 1928.

    The Trail at 80: A new documentary retraces the eccentricities of South Florida's signature highway

    Escape to Dreamland, 9-10 p.m. Sunday, WLRN-PBS 17 Because I grew up halfway across the country in the middle of a desert, my knowledge of Florida's sultry southern tip was vague and tenuous. For years my dominant and perhaps only mental image of South Florida was grubby tenement rat Dustin Hoffman's quiet expiration in the back of the bus at the end of Midnight Cowboy, the beaches he dreamed of shimmering delusively in the background.
