Ivory-Merchant film turns on Picasso's infidelities At a glance


In "Surviving Picasso" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Cinemax), Director James Ivory, co-producer Ismail Merchant and screenwriter Ruth Prawer Jhabvala ("A Room With a View," "Howards End") turn the life of Pablo Picasso into a conventional biography.

The 1996 film splits its attention between the Spanish painter (Anthony Hopkins) and Francoise Gilot (Natascha McElhone), the woman who was his companion between 1943 and 1953 in Paris. Julianne Moore and Susannah Harker portray two of the artist's mistresses.
