Tonight is the last night of Illeana Douglas's hugely popular turn as a  TCM guest host. Every Friday night in May she has hosted films worth a second look, and boy can she pick em. Each week it has trended on twitter with the hash tag #TCMparty. Illeana tweets along giving insight into the films as well as just kibitzing with TCM fans.

Tonight's line up begins at 5pm ET and includes A NEW LEAF (pictured above),1941, THOSE LIPS THOSE EYES, and ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS. if you haven't caught any of these make a point to do so tonight and if you have seen them, well then I'm sure you'll be back.
