Welcome to fall (unofficially). Since we kicked off our coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival today, we thought it was only appropriate that we hold a contest to give away some passes to one of our favourite films from last year’s festival! Enter for a chance to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY in TORONTO or VANCOUVER on September 15th in Vancouver or September 18th in Toronto, courtesy of Dork Shelf and eOne Films!
With his unique vision, writer/director Ned Benson ambitiously captures a complete picture of a relationship in the beautifully relatable portrait of love, empathy and truth that is THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY. Once happily married, Conor (James McAvoy) and Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) suddenly find themselves as strangers longing to understand each other in the wake of tragedy. The film explores the couple’s story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone. Screened for the first time at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Benson’s latest version of their story combines his previous two films – titled HIM and HER – uniting their perspectives and taking a further look into the subjectivity of relationships.
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby opens in Toronto and Vancouver on Friday, September 19th, but here’s how you can see it first! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Please only one email entry per household. Multiple email entries will be deleted. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from out Twitter! Deadline for entries in Vancouver is 11:59pm on Thursday, September 11th. Deadline for entries in Toronto is 11:59pm on Monday, September 15th.
