Win tickets for Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

movie posterExtremely Loud & Incredibly Close (Rating:PG – Contains Coarse Language) is coming to cinemas on February 23, and Warner Bros. Pictures and Christchurch City Libraries are giving you the chance to WIN 1 of 5 double passes to see this film.

Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Jonathan Safran Foer, the film tells the story of one young boy’s journey from heartbreaking loss to self-discovery, set against the backdrop of the tragic events of September 11.

Eleven-year-old Oskar Schell is an exceptional child: amateur inventor, Francophile, pacifist.  And after finding a mysterious key that belonged to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11, he embarks on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York.  As Oskar roams the city, he encounters a variety of individuals, all survivors in their own way.  Ultimately, Oskar’s journey ends where it began, but with the solace of that most human experience: community.

The film stars Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock. Other big names appearing include James Gandolfini, Max Von Sydow, John Goodman and Viola Davis (who just scored the Screen Actors Guild best actress for her role as Aibileen in The Help). Thomas Horn is Oscar.
