Mike Mills’ truly excellent film BEGINNERS is released today and to celebrate The Roundeyes have got hold of five copies on Blu Ray to give away!

This is one of the year’s top releases, easily in our Top Five movies of the year. Which is why we’ve decided to do make this our first ever competition!

BEGINNERS is a heartfelt comedy drama about Oliver, a graphic artist (Ewan McGregor), dealing with his elderly father who a) has terminal cancer and b) comes out as gay at 75 years old.

It’s also a love story dealing with the coming together of Oliver and Anna (the excellent Mélanie Laurent) against a cinematic backdrop of hazy Southern California.
Moving, reflective, laugh-out-loud funny and more, this film is a real treat from start to finish.

And how many movies can honestly count a jack russell (subtitled of course) as the real star of the show?
Director Mike Mills’ last film of note was the also-excellent THUMBSUCKER, so if you enjoyed that we seriously recommend you check out this little gem of a movie.

To enter our fab competition to win the film on Blu Ray, simply email the answer to this question along with your full name and address to:

What was the name of Mike Mills’ debut feature film starring Tilda Swinton?

a) Toesucker

b) Thumbsucker

c) Titsucker

UK residents only please. Only one entry per household. You must be over 15 to enter. The competition closes on Wednesday 23rd November.

The five names out of that hat with the correct answer will then get their hands on a sparkling new Blu Ray of the film.


If you’re not one of our lucky winners, remember BEGINNERS is available to buy on DVD and Blu Ray in all your usual places from November 14th.
