SINCE HER starring role in Good Will Hunting, Minnie Driver has become one of our most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. She shows why in Grosse Pointe Blank (10pm Sky Premier), an engagingly off-beat, black comedy from George Armitage. She plays a woman being wooed by her former childhood sweetheart, a professional assassin (John Cusack, right) back in town for the first time in 10 years for a school reunion. All the while, he is being trailed by a rival killer, Mr Grocer (Dan Aykroyd).
