LoreIt’s competition time again folks and we’ve got an added bonus this time around. To celebrate the release of Cate Shortland’s Lore which our very own Henry Tucker gave a whopping 5 stars this week, we’re giving away 3 copies of the film on DVD. The ‘added bonus’ I mentioned earlier is a copy of the novel the film is based on, The Dark Room by Racehl Seiffert. We only have one of these to give away though and it will be packaged with the DVD copy given to just one lucky reader.

And if Henry’s review wasn’t enough to get you interested, here’s some more information on Lore:

May 1945: Stranded with her younger siblings after their Nazi parents are imprisoned during the dying days of WWII, the young Lore (a stunning breakthrough performance by Saskia Rosendahl) leads the remains of her family across war-torn Germany. Among the chaos of a defeated nation, Lore encounters Thomas, a young Jewish refugee who begins to follow and help them.

Lore finds her fragile reality shattered by feelings of both hatred and desire for Thomas, and as the consequences of her parent’s actions and beliefs slowly become apparent, she must begin to face the darkness within herself…

DVD Release date 27th May 2013

    No matter how hard Lore tried, she couldn’t get those secret documents to burn. Which is odd as the soldiers she put on the fire went up instantly.

    Knowing this was a smokeless zone, she asked the three-legged siamese twins to act as lookout.

    The 1945 Bonfire Night celebrations were a little underwhelming.

    Lore regretted the ‘burning of the books’ – copies of Brecht, Kafka and Freud would have been handy when trying to get the kids off to sleep

  5. Michael Cannon

    As the fire finally died Lore pondered knowing what had been told to her was the truth. Nothing could make her look hot wearing that outfit.

    I knew when I bought that metal detector that it would come in handy one day!

    I told you it wasn’t an indoor firework. But no you wouldn’t listen would you
