Good day to you fine dork men and women. Today, we have a special giveaway to help inject a bit of culture into your life. Granted it’s still pretty violent and dark, but that’s still culture. Dork Shelf have teamed up with the good people at D Films to give away three copies of actor Ralph Fiennes directorial debut CORIOLANUS on Blu-Ray.
Caius Martius Coriolanus (Fiennes), a revered and feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens. Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave) to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul, he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office. When the public refuses to support him, Coriolanus’ anger prompts a riot that culminates in his expulsion from Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city. Based on the work by William Shakespeare, this big screen adaptation also stars Brian Cox and Academy Award Nominee Jessica Chastain.
Coriolanus explodes onto DVD and Blu-Ray on Tuesday, January 29th, but here’s how you can enter to score a free copy. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with CORIOLANUS in the subject line.
