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. Left to wonder what her future will hold, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

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.

Thanks to Icon Films , we have 4 x double passes to give away to MACHETE KILLS – in Australian cinemas from October 24.

 

The highly anticipated sequel to the cult-sensation MACHETE reunites star Danny Trejo (MACHETE, GRINDHOUSE) and director Robert Rodriguez (MACHETE, SIN CITY). Trained to kill, left for dead, Machete is back and this time he’s on the right side of the law. With gleefully gory comic book action, outrageously over-the-top characters and an absurd all-star cast including Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Hudgens, Amber Heard, Alexa Vega, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Mel Gibson, plus Lady Gaga and “introducing” Carlos Estevez (Charlie Sheen) as President of the United States. Bigger, bolder and more bad-ass than ever, MACHETE KILLS is a cool gore-splattered, star-studded action film!

 

You can check out the trailer for Machete Kills here

For your chance to WIN simply tell us in 25 words or less which actor you’d love to see cameo in MACHETE KILLS and why? Send all answers, along with your name and postal address to sam@anonlineuniverse.com by 12pm on Tuesday 22 October 2013.
