As I Lay Dying DVDAs if the In the Blood competition we posted yesterday wasn’t enough, we’re offering our readers the chance to win another fantastic prize in June.

You may all know James Franco as one of the busiest actors in Hollywood, but he’s actually even busier than you think, having directed a handful of films too (on top of various other projects – how does he do it?). One of these titles, As I Lay Dying, made it to the Cannes Film Festival last year and to celebrate its home entertainment release on 23rd June, our good friends at Lionsgate have offered us 2 DVD copies to give away.

Here’s some information about the film to let you know more about what you could win:

Directed by and starring Academy Award® nominee James Franco, As I Lay Dying is a gripping Western adapted from the best-selling, classic novel by William Faulkner. Also starring Danny McBride (This is the End), Tim Blake Nelson (Oh Brother, Where Art Though?, Lincoln) and Jim Parack (True Blood) the film was part of the Official Selection at Cannes Film Festival and BFI London Film Festival 2014.

As I Lay Dying chronicles the Bundren family as they traverse the Mississippi countryside to bring the body of their deceased mother Addie to her hometown for burial. Addie’s husband Anse (Tim Blake Nelson) and their children, Cash (Jim Parrack), Darl (James Franco), and three of their siblings, leave the farm with her coffin – each affected by Addie’s death in a profound and different way. Their journey is disrupted by every antagonistic force of nature or man: flooded rivers, injury and accident, a raging barn fire, and not least of all — each individual character’s personal turmoil, which threaten the fabric of the family more than any outside force.

DVD release date: 23rd June 2014
