The Awakening - Featured


Hello again from all your ghostly friends here at Dork Shelf. It’s time for another contest that goes bump in the night from your wonderful friends at Dork Shelf. This time we’ve teamed up with the wonderful folks at eOne Films to send five lucky winners and a guest to see the haunting thriller THE AWAKENING during its run of engagement in Toronto or Vancouver.

The Awakening is set in 1921, in a post-war England where many of the bereaved seek solace in spiritualism. Haunted by the death of her fiancé, Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall) is committed to debunking supernatural claims, using methodical and rational explanations. When she is asked to visit a boarding school in the countryside called Rookwood – to investigate the alleged sightings of a ghostly young boy – she feels compelled to take the job. The film also stars Dominic West and Imelda Staunton.

The Awakening opens in theatres in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver this Friday, August 17th, and we want to send you to the movies for free! To enter, simply email [email protected] with THE AWAKENING in the subject line. Please only one entry per household. Offer sadly not available in Quebec. 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 Saturday, August 18th.

Good luck and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf for all the latest news, reviews, interviews, and killer contests.
