Wunderbar! To celebrate today's DVD, Blu Ray and digital download release of Cate Shortland's luminous Lore, I'm delighted to announce a give away!
Thanks to the Fabelhaft team at Transmission, I have five Blu-Rays (RRP $44.95) to send to five lucky film lovers.
Now I am unapologetically in love with Lore. You can read my Limelight Magazine review HERE, where I called the film "an unforgettable journey into the heart of Germany's dark past."
I also had the great pleasure of interviewing Cate Shortland and her lovely star Saskia Rosendahl for a Sydney Film Festival Apple Store Talk. You can take a listen HERE.
Or you can just take a read of the official synopsis:
Stranded with her younger siblings after their Nazi parents are imprisoned, Lore leads the remains of her family across war-torn Germany in 1945. To survive, the children must reach their Grandmother’s house in the North. Amidst the chaos of a defeated nation, Lore encounters the mysterious and intriguing Thomas, a young Jewish refugee. Unwanted, unwelcome, Thomas follows them and Lore finds her fragile reality shattered by feelings of both hatred and desire.
To live, she must learn to trust a person she has been taught to hate. And as the consequences of her parents’ actions and beliefs become apparent, Lore must also start to face the darkness within herself.
To win one of five Blu Rays simply email me (subject: Lore Blu Ray) with your name and address (Australian residents only - sorry!). Winners will be notified by reply.
