CONTEST: See UNLUCKY at the Royal!


Greetings shelfers, it’s your lucky day – although we can’t say the same about the protagonist of Ian Robertson’s new film Unlucky. The dark comedy begins its run at the Royal this weekend, and we have five tickets to give away to five very fortunate winners.

Check out the Unlucky trailer and contest info below!

Unlucky is the story of Darren Mackintosh (Second City standout and TV regular Jim Annan), a young man who discovers things can always get worse, and will. Suspecting that his pileup of misfortunes could be more than a coincidence – and encouraged by his workmate Jeanette (Debra DiGiovanni) – Darren seeks the help of a highly unorthodox psychiatrist, Dr. Frankel (Alan Catlin).

But before he can be “cured,” Darren’s life is further complicated by an angry mob boss (Canadian TV icon Pat Mastroianni, AKA Joey Jeremiah from Degrassi), two hard-nosed detectives, belligerent co-workers, an unforgiving boss, an eccentric billionaire, her brow-beaten butler, a Luther Vandross impersonator, a rogue FBI agent, a beautiful stranger, her escaped convict ex-boyfriend, inappropriate landlords, a vicious poodle and an alien abduction conspiracy.

Unlucky will have a special run of engagement this weekend (Oct 25 – 27) at the Royal in Toronto, and we want to send you to see it for free! For a chance to win, simply email [email protected] with UNLUCKY in the subject line. Contest is open to all Canadian residents. Please only one entry per household. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or retweet the announcement from our Twitter. Deadline for entries is 11:00 AM on Friday, October 26th.

Good luck, and as always stay tuned to Dork Shelf for more great contests, and all the latest news and reviews.
