Happy Thursday MMT Fam! I apologize for not posting a #ThingsToDoFromHome recommendation list this week, but it has been a busy one. Between working full-time, watching several screeners (I have 8 reviews started for this month and December) and interview scheduling/preparing, in addition to well…life lol, I am diligently working to create a routine and better accommodate it all!
That being said, I’m so excited to offer today’s giveaway for a chance to screen the upcoming fantasy film COME AWAY! I had the opportunity to see this during its closing presentation at Urbanworld Film Festival and, although I wasn’t blown away, thought it an appropriate viewing for families and stand-alone viewing ages 12 and up.
Here’s the synopsis: In this imaginative origin story of two of the most beloved characters in literature – Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland – eight-year-old Alice (Keira Chansa), her mischievous brother Peter (Jordan A. Nash) and their brilliant older sibling David (Reece Yates) let their imaginations run wild one blissful summer in the English countryside. Encouraged by their parents Jack and Rose (David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie), the kids’ make-believe tea parties, sword fights and pirate ship adventures end abruptly when tragedy strikes. Peter, eager to prove himself a hero to his grief-stricken and financially struggling parents, journeys with Alice to London, where they try to sell a treasured heirloom to the sinister pawnshop owner known as C.J. (David Gyasi). Returning home, Alice seeks temporary refuge in a wondrous rabbit hole while Peter permanently escapes reality by entering a magical realm as leader of the “Lost Boys.”
The virtual screening for the film is taking place next Tuesday, November 10 at 7pm. To try your luck at a pass, click here and follow the RSVP prompt and instructions. Tickets are on a first-come, first-serve basis and are not guaranteed.
COME AWAY will be released in theaters and at home on-demand on Friday, November 13. Additional information if available at the official website here.
Good Luck! Thomasena
