Happy New Year MMT Fam! What better way to start the new year – with the exception of last Friday’s “Cobra Kai” post – than with a movie screening giveaway! We’re giving away passes for the Amazon Studios film HERSELF screening virtually this Wednesday, January 6 at 7 PM.
Here’s the synopsis: Single mother Sandra (Clare Dunne) escapes her abusive partner with her two young children, only to find herself trapped in temporary accommodation. After months of struggling, she draws inspiration from one of her daughter’s bedtime stories and hits upon the idea of self-building an affordable home. She finds an architect who provides her with plans and is offered land by Peggy (Harriet Walter), a woman she cleans for. Aido (Conleth Hill), a building contractor, appears willing to help, too. But as her past rears its head in the form of Gary (Ian Lloyd Anderson), her possessive ex, and as bureaucrats fight back against her independent spirit, will Sandra be able to rebuild her life from the ground up?
To try your luck at a pass, click here (code is HERSELFPHL if needed) to go to the Amazon Studios landing and select “RSVP.” You will be prompted to register and create an account if you haven’t already. Approximately one hour before the film’s start time, you will receive a link to access the screening. Space is limited, and availability is first-come, first-served, so please “arrive” early to hold your space.
HERSELF premieres on Amazon Prime on Friday, January 8.
