My One and Only - Competition, Prizes and a great period movie !
"Never never look in the rear view mirror darling, it makes no difference what's behind you"
What a wonderful quote !! It is out of a darling new film "My One and Only", set in 1953 and brimming with all things captivating, about the era. Magnificent music, dreamy clothing, cars, architecture and design - all the things we love here at Alice Jeans. And then there is the facinating storyline and the meaty characters.....
My One and Only, directed by Richard Loncraine, is inspired by the incidents in the life of actor and Hollywood icon George Hamilton. This breezy journey follows the refined and enchanting Ann Deveraux (Renee Zellweger), who packs up her life, including two teenage sons, buys a Cadillac convertible and embarks on a cross-country trip to get away from philandering, society bandleader Dan (Kevin Bacon.) Anns goal: to find herself a new husband. Yet what this unconventional family discover is something altogether more wonderful.
To celebrate the release of this film in cinemas across Australia on March 11, I have 5 in season double passes to give away - How EXCITING !!!!
