Movies based on novels are happening all over the place. They’re adaptations as old as time. And so today I’ve got an ROE (Run Of Engagement) pass and book prize pack for The Little Stranger! Synopsis!
THE LITTLE STRANGER tells the story of Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants – mother, son and daughter – are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.
What’s great about an ROE? Well, you can pick the time and day you’d like (during the workweek, typically) and go. No standing in line. No wondering if you’ll get a seat. Go, present your ROE pass, and enjoy the show. Period. Ready to get your literary and movie-ary thang on? Let’s go!
What: A prize pack that includes a Baltimore area ROE (Run Of Engagement) pass to The Little Stranger and a copy of “The Little Stranger” novel by Sarah Waters. The winner will get the info on where and how to use the pass. But the book is pretty self explanatory, no?
Why: BOOK AND MOVIE COMPARE AND CONTRAST!
How: It’s contest time! So send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “People are Strange”. Be sure to put your real name and mailing address in the body of the email. Why? Because I can’t send your name and addy to the studio rep without…well, your name and address.
YOU HAVE UNTIL AUGUST 29TH AT NOON TO ENTER. Only the winner will be notified.
Good luck, everyone!
