Giveaway: Win One of FIVE In Season Double Passes To See The Oscar Nominated Film Brooklyn

Brooklyn 1


Thanks to the wonderful people at Kabuku Public Relations, I have 5 double passes to giveaway today to see the Oscar nominated film Brooklyn. These passes are valid for any screening of the movie Brooklyn during it’s cinema season. Based on the novel of the same name by Colm Toibin, Brooklyn is already receiving rave reviews and is sure to become one of the year’s must see films.



Opening in cinemas on February 11th 2016, the film follows Eilis (Ronan), a young Irish woman who leaves her small town in Ireland hoping for a bright future in 1950s Brooklyn. Despite her homesickness she falls in love with Tony, an Italian-American who opens her eyes to her new surroundings. But a family tragedy leads Eilis back to Ireland, and she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

You can watch the trailer here:

Unfortunately, this giveaway is restricted to Australian residents. The give-away will close at Midnight Friday 12th February, with winners notified by email and announced on the blog over the weekend. Good luck everyone!

    Probably Paper Towns. It’s one of the very few book to movie adaptations I’ve seen, but still loved it. I mean, who doesn’t love a good John Green book? 🙂

      Hey Paige,
      Good choice. I actually only saw this movie recently once it was released on DVD and I didn’t mind it. I think I still prefer The Fault In Our Stars over Paper Towns as both a book and a movie, but its still amazing 🙂

    My favourite book to movie adaption is The Fault In Our Stars. They did a brilliant job bringing it to life on the big screen. It was emotional and heartfelt, with the whole cinema in tears so much so that I could actually feel the rows vibrating from all the violent sobbing. It was quite an experience…

    • Jess says:

      Oh they really did with that movie. I was fortunate enough to go to a advance screening and I swear you could heart hearts breaking and just pure heart wrenching sobbing throughout the cinema. I’ve never experienced anything like it before.

    The Dressmaker is my favourite movie/film adaptation because it was so uniquely Australian with exquisite costumes and great acting.

  4. Amy says:

    I am half tempted to say The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh because it was the best way to tell those stories. But I didn’t mind Paper Towns either, that felt like a true adaptation that kept the feeling of the book. The ones I didn’t like would be easier if I’m honest!

    • Jess says:

      Hahaha I know, but I’m evil and wanted something different. Society always talks about the books that were better than the movies, but what about the ones that were on par? When the movie people got it right.
