The Blindside OscarGGSponsored post

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:

Colchester 

Brighton 

Beckenham 

Manchester Printworks

Derby

Exeter

Guildford

Lincoln

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?

    This film sounds really good and I’d like see it at some stage. I’ll definitely be ordering your book – but isn’t that copy in German?

    I finished by book yesterday, hoping to find a publisher at some stage once I’ve edited it.

      That’s fantastic news about finishing your book, CJ – a great moment! Hope you are celebrating.

      My book is in German – I’m hoping it’ll be a smasheroonie in German and that a UK publisher will then decide they NEED to publish it here xx

  • geekymummy March 15, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    Wish I could read German! Dumb question, did you write in in German, with the intent of publishing there first, or did you write it in English and get picked up by a German publisher? (I’m sure you write wonderfully in both languages!)
