Fed up with the Olympics or just looking for something to watch while you are on holiday? Or perhaps you are already a big fan of Simon Pummell and Janine Marmot? Here’s your chance to win The Identicals (Released on 15th August) on DVD. I’ve got two copies to give away, so you’ve got double the chance of winning!
Starring Lachlan Nieboer (Cross of Honour, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman) and Nora-Jane Noone (The Descent, The Magdalene Sisters, Savage), in Identicals. the organization Brand New-U identifies networks of IDENTICALS – people who walk like you, talk like you, but are walking through different, better lives – and helps their customers make a life upgrade: eliminating the better-life donor, and relocating their client to that brand new life. Slater seems to have the perfect life, the perfect job and the perfect girlfriend. But when Slater’s girlfriend is abducted by Brand New-U, and a corpse left in her place, he is forced to become an Identical. As he moves through a series of parallel lives, he becomes more and more obsessed with finding his girlfriend, but what he must find in the end is himself.
BAFTA winning Director Simon Pummell said:
“The experience of taking IDENTICALS out to science fiction audiences has been fantastic. As a community of festivals, critics, filmgoers and fans they are highly literate and passionate. Every festival and every discussion, every screening it felt like there was something important at stake. It made me understand why contemporary science fiction speaks to so many people: we are all children of technology and media now — and science fiction can explore what that feels like and what that means for us.
I started making animated fantastic and surrealist films, then I made poetic documentaries — always wanting to make cinema that conveyed the strangeness of our contemporary world — now I’ve found a space in science fiction with IDENTICALS and our upcoming William Gibson adaptation FIGHT — and it feels like coming home.”
