Thanks to Icon Films , we have 3 x double passes to give away to DEVIL’S KNOT – in Australian cinemas from July 24.

Synopsis
In 1993 West Memphis, Arkansas was rocked by the brutal murder of three eight year old boys. The police very quickly accused three teenagers, claiming they had killed the children as part of a satanic ritual. DEVIL’S KNOT chronicles this harrowing true story from the perspective of one of the mothers, Pam Hobbs (Witherspoon) and the investigator for the accused boys’ defence team, Ron Lax (Firth). Whilst the parents and the community struggle to cope with the heinous nature of this crime and call out for those responsible to be brought to justice, Lax discovers that the prosecutorial case is based entirely on circumstantial evidence and prejudicial assumptions about the accused teenagers’ love of goth culture and heavy metal music.

Thanks to Madman Entertainment, we have 2 copies of ENEMY on Blu-ray to give away.

ENEMY

ENEMY is available to rent or buy on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital now!

Synopsis

Jake Gyllenhaal reunites with his PRISONERS director, Denis Villeneuve, in this sexy and hypnotically surreal psychological thriller that breathes new life into the doppelgänger tradition. Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal) is a glum, disheveled history professor, who seems disinterested with even his beautiful girlfriend, Mary (Laurent). While watching a movie, Adam spots his exact double – a bit-part actor named Anthony Clair – and decides to track him down. When the identical men meet, their lives become bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined. Gyllenhaal is transfixing as both Adam and Anthony, masterfully embodying two distinct personas while Villeneuve takes us on an enigmatic and gripping journey through a world that is both familiar and strange — and hard to shake off long after its final, unnerving image.

To Win

Tell us which film starring Jake Gyllenhaal is your favourite. Send your answer, along with your name and postal address to  sam@anonlineuniverse.com  by 9pm on Tuesday July 22nd 2014. For an extra entry, ‘Like’ us on Facebook.

Being in the care of her great-uncle, Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the colour of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing.

Like Father, Like Son – In Australian cinemas April 17

Thanks to Rialto Distribution we have 5 double passes to give away to Like Father, Like Son 

Synopsis: The ‘switched at birth’ urban legend and the Nature-vs.-Nurture debate provides, the globally acclaimed director of Nobody Knows, Still Walking and I Wish, Hirokazu Kore-eda with a fresh opportunity to revisit his ongoing preoccupation with family dynamics and parent-child relationships in contemporary Japan. The life of go-getting workaholic architect Ryota—one of comfort and quietly ordered affluence with his wife Midori and son Keita —is violently overturned when hospital administrators reveal the unthinkable: Keita is not his biological son. Due to a mistake made by a negligent nurse, his ‘true’ son has been raised in the dishevelled but warm-hearted home of working-class shopkeeper Yudai and his wife. The different approaches of both couples to their excruciating dilemma and the gradual emotional awakening of the all-too-rational Ryota are at the core of this sensitive drama of family feeling, which showcases Kore-eda’s rich sense of humanity.

For your chance to WIN simply tell us why you want to see Like Father, Like Son. Send all answers, along with your name and postal address to sam@anonlineuniverse.com by 10am on Thursday 17 April.
