Hello my dears, I thought you all deserved a lovely treat, after all my shocking boasting over the last few days (in case you’ve managed to escape it, my book is coming out today!! Click here to have a peek: http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/search-handle-url?_encoding=UTF8&search-type=ss&index=books-de&field-author=Alice%20Castle).
How about seeing a preview of the new Warner Brothers film Sandra Bullock has just won an Oscar for? It’s called Blind Side, and it doesn’t come out until 26th March – but you can have two free tickets to see it on the 16th, next Tuesday, thanks to Warner and the lovely folk at See Film First.
The film story goes like this:
Teenager Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is surviving on his own, virtually homeless, when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock). Learning that the young man is one of her daughter’s classmates, Leigh Anne insists that Michael—wearing shorts and a t-shirt in the dead of winter—come out of the cold. Without a moment’s hesitation, she invites him to stay at the Tuohy home for the night. What starts out as a gesture of kindness turns into something more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds.
His new environment gives him a different set of challenges to overcome – and the Tuohy family is forced to question its own beliefs too.
Sounds like it’s got it all – a bit of drama, a bit of sport, a bit of touchy-feely changing for the better and, of course, an Oscar-worthy performance from Sandra B.
The film is on at the following locations:
Kingston upon Thames
Edinburgh Wester Hailes
Southend on Sea
I’m definitely going, and I’ve printed off my tickets already, so I can tell you it’s easy-peasy. All you have to do is cut and paste this little code: 560634. Then go to the Film First website, enter the code, register, choose a cinema, print out your ticket, which admits two, and then just count out your loose change for popcorn. Simples!
Hope you enjoy it. Oh, and don’t forget to order my book too!! How cheeky am I?
