Hello once again to our friends in TORONTO and VANCOUVER! It’s not like we haven’t given you plenty of contests this week, but we have another one lined up for you, courtesy of our friends at Mongrel Media! Enter for a chance to win a pair of run-of-engagement passes to see THE HOMESMAN. Two lucky GRAND PRIZE winners will also receive a copy of the novel the film is based on, courtesy of Simon & Schuster Canada!
When three women living on the edge of the American frontier are driven mad by harsh pioneer life, the task of saving them falls to the pious, independent-minded Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank). Transporting the women by covered wagon to Iowa, she soon realizes just how daunting the journey will be, and employs a low-life drifter, George Briggs (Tommy Lee Jones, who also directs), to join her. The unlikely pair and the three women (Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter) head east, where a waiting minister and his wife (Meryl Streep) have offered to take the women in. But the group first must traverse the harsh Nebraska Territories marked by stark beauty, psychological peril and constant threat.
The Homesman opens in Toronto and Vancouver this Friday, but here’s how you can see it on us! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with THE HOMESMAN in the subject line. Please include a name and mailing address in your email. 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 and/or re-Tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Tuesday, November 25th.
Good luck, and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf for all the latest movie news, reviews, interviews, features and more great contests!
