Hello TORONTO! Happy Friday! Let’s send the week out with an awesome contest just for you guys! Enter for a chance to win a pair of tickets to an advance screening one of our favourite films of the year, THE DOUBLE, on Wednesday, June 11th at 7:15pm, courtesy of Dork Shelf and D Films!
Inspired by Dostoyevsky’s novella of the same name, The Double is a dark comedy directed and co-written by Richard Ayoade (Submarine, Moss from The IT Crowd); a funny and frightening story about an insignificant man driven to near breakdown by the appearance of his doppelganger.
Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams (Mia Wasikowska). He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James (also Jesse Eisenberg), serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.
The Double opens in Toronto on Friday, June 13th, but here’s how you can see it first! Simply email email@example.com with THE DOUBLE in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. Multiple 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 our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Sunday, June 8th.
