Hello once again, Toronto and Vancouver! Looking for something to watch over the holiday break? Well, we might have you covered with our next great contest! Enter for a chance to win run-of-engagement passes to see MR. TURNER, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Mongrel Media!
MR. TURNER explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851).
Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies.
Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.
Mr. Turner hits theatres in Toronto and Vancouver on December 25th, but here’s how you can see it early on us! Simply email [email protected] with Mr. TURNER 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 our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Monday, December 29th.
Good luck and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf for all the latest movie news, reviews, interviews, features, and more great contests!
