Thanks to our friends at The Festivalists and Possible Worlds, we have 5 double passes for the Australian premiere of Martin Donovan's directorial debut, Collaborator, to give to our readers.
Date: Wednesday August 15
Venue: Dendy Opera Quays, Sydney
Special Guest: Writer, director and main actor Martin Donovan
Synopsis: Robert Longfellow (Martin Donovan) is a famous New York playwright in crisis: his marriage is on the rocks and his star is on the wane. He flies to LA to visit his mother, call in on an old flame and kickstart a screenwriting career. One night, he catches up with childhood neighbour Gus (David Morse), a right-wing ex-con who still lives at home. During a drunken night, Gus pulls a gun on Martin and decides to hold him hostage.
What the organizers said about the film: Acclaimed actor Martin Donovan writes and directs his first feature, a tense and talky showdown between two men who couldn't be more different. Collaborator is a smart parable about a polarised nation where liberals and conservatives are forced to cohabit. It's also an enthralling, brilliantly acted drama about class, celebrity, politics and the media.
How to win: You just have to email your name and address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The competition will close at midnight EST on Sunday August 12.
Possible Worlds, now in its 7th year, is Sydney's Canadian Film Festival. It will be running from August 13 to 19 this year. Check their official website for details.
