Thanks to Icon Film Distribution Australia, ccpopculture has 5 buy-one-get-one-free passes to Infinitely Polar Bear, releasing in Australian cinemas Thursday March 26th, along with a DVD drama pack featuring Dan in Real Life, The Burning Plain, Last Chance Harvey and The Beaver.
“Fresh from his much lauded performances in Foxcatcher and TV’s The Normal Heart, Mark Ruffalo is Cam. Cam is a bit of a mess – as a man, as a husband and as a father. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, he seeks to win back his wife by assuming full responsibility for their two young and spirited daughters (who don’t make the overwhelming task easy). When his wife reluctantly goes to business school in another city, Cam’s daughters are as much of a parent to him, as he is to them. Cam is determined to break his trend of not fulfilling expectations and prove to his family that he can be the man they need him to be. His manic behaviour provides as much of a world of colour as it does trouble, but this family is determined to stay together no matter what. Based on the childhood of writer/director Maya Forbes, this funny, moving depiction of an unconventional family was one of the standout films of the Sundance Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival in 2014.”
Infinitely Polar Bear is the best new film of 2015 I’ve seen thus far, per my review, so I’m happy to give Australian readers the opportunity to bring along a friend or partner to see it, free of charge. And one of the five winners will get the added bonus of four of Icon’s DVDs! All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “Infinitely Polar Bear Giveaway” and let me know your name, postal address and your favourite Mark Ruffalo performance (personally, I’m torn between his work in Zodiac and this film, but there’s a tonne of great options).This giveaway is only open to Australian residents in the classification age group of the film (Infinitely Polar Bear is currently awaiting Australian classification). Winners will be announced early next week.
Thanks to everyone who entered! This giveaway has now ended; the winners are Colin, Jordan, Jyoti, Martin and Michelle. Chosen amongst the favourite Ruffalo performances were Apartment 12, Shutter Island, The Kids Are Alright, You Can Count On Me and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind(one of my favourite films!). Martin was lucky enough to walk away with the drama pack of DVDs; congrats to all the winners!
