We here at Dork Shelf were thinking about retiring because we do such a darn great job looking out for our readers with all the wonderful contests we run, but instead we decided to partner up once again with the wonderful folks at eOne Films to give away a pair of run-of-engagement passes to the Canadian made OLD STOCK in TORONTO.
Stock Burton (Noah Reid) is a local legend. A monumental event from his past has frozen him, sent his family into a tailspin and pitted his small town against him. Now he’s simply chosen to drop out of life and ‘retire’, joining his recently separated grandfather, Harold, (Jack Daniel Wells) at the Golden Seasons senior’s home, where life is safe, comfortable and worry free with three delicious meals a day. But after two years of crokinole playing, pill-popping and blissful denial of his problems, Stock is forced to return to reality. Outside the safety of Golden Seasons, Stock’s past quickly catches up with him, and he knows he must finally face Dahlia (Meghan Heffern), the person who suffered most from Stock’s past mistake. With the help of Patti, (Melanie Leishman) a cute girl with a criminal record who recognizes all the good in him, Stock starts to muster the strength he needs to finally make things right. Along the way he must learn to look life in the eye, accept its imperfections, and re-open his heart for a chance to move on.
Old Stock opens exclusively at the Carlton Cinema in Toronto on Friday, May 31st, but here’s what you can do to win a pair of passes. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with OLD STOCK 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 Friday, May 31st.
Good luck and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf all summer long for more great contests, as well as the latest news, reviews, interviews, and features!
