Colin Firth Competition – Win Genova DVD

Posted by LiveFor on September 6, 2009

genova-Stills_228_1024_72_largeColin Firth loves a good costume drama. From Pride and Prejudice to the new take on Dorian Gray (check out the trailer for that here) the Firthster is there with the frilly shirt and the smouldering look.

However, he has been known to star in films set in the modern day and Michael Winterbottom’s Genova is one of them.

The good people of Way to Blue have provided me with 4 copies of the DVD – Certificate 15, Region 2, PAL. Open to anyone in the World. To be in with a chance to win one all you have to do is send me the answer to the following question:

Name four Colin Firth films that are not costume dramas

So any films set in the modern day apart from Genova and no sequels allowed!

Email me the answer with the subject “GENOVA COMP” and include your name and address – Closing date is Sunday 13th September. The four winners will be chosen at random. My decision is final.

Good luck.

A haunting, eerie journey to a place where souls stir and hearts go to mend themselves, Genova is the dark, brooding voyage of discovery for one family, torn apart by tragedy.

With its sun drenched vistas and shadow-cloaked alleyways, and Italian town of Genova provides a fresh start for Joe and his two young daughters. Seeking new lives after the sudden death of their mother they’re all looking for something. As Joe throws himself into study and possible new relationships, the teenage Kelly loses herself in the underbelly of this mysterious new world.

But it’s youngest daughter Mary who is affected by this mystifying and alluring paradise. And then she sees the ghost of her mother wandering the streets…

With echoes of Nicholas Roeg’s seminal Don’t Look Now, this acclaimed, stunning new film from the multi-award winning Michael Winterbottom (A Mighty Heart) stars Colin Firth (Mama Mia), Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich), Hope Davis (Synecdoche, New York), Willa Holland (The O.C.) and Perla Haney-Jardine (Kill Bill Vol. 2)

more about "Dorian Gray – Teaser Trailer", posted with vodpod

As you no doubt know the Oscar Wilde story of Dorian Gray follows a corrupt young man who becomes the subject of a painting. As the man descends into a hedonistic lifestyle, the portrait begins to age and morph, but he is able to keep his youthful beauty.

Dorian Gray is directed by Oliver Parker (Othello, The Importance of Being Earnest, and St. Trinian’s). The screenplay was written by first-time writer Toby Finlay.

Dorian Gray is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival next month and is set to open in the UK in September. It does not yet have a US distributor yet.

Dorian Gray – New Poster

Dorian Gray – Poster – He sure has a pretty picture

Posted by LiveFor on June 19, 2009

Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) stars in the new major feature film adaptation of Dorian Gray.

Dark Horizons got hold of this poster for the film that is due out in UK cinemas on 11th September.

‘Gray’ tells the story of a strikingly beautiful young man named Dorian (Ben Barnes). He arrives in Victorian London and is swept into a social whirlwind by the charismatic Henry Wotton (Colin Firth), who introduces Dorian to the hedonistic pleasures of the city.

When a portrait of Dorian is unveiled, such is its beauty that he makes a pledge: he would give anything to stay as he is in the picture – even his soul. “Dorian Gray” examines the destructive power of beauty, the blind pursuit of pleasure and the darkness that can result.

I always liked the tale of The Picture of Dorian Gray and I say a great stage show of it a few years ago. I just hope this new film does it justice. It’s got to be better than the version we saw in The League of Extraordinary Gentleman film.
