A passionate crime committed by two passionate people splits them apart, but nothing can put out the flame of attraction in David Lowery‘s beautiful “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints.” One of the year’s finest films and a festival circuit sensation, if you missed the chance to see it on the big screen then the good news is that you’ll soon be able to catch up with it in the comfort of your own home.
Starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, the film tells the tale of Bob Muldoon who takes the fall after his partner Ruth Guthrie’s gun wounds a police officer during a standoff. Though sentenced to 25 years in prison, Bob makes a daring escape, determined to reconnect with the love of his life and meet the daughter he’s never seen. But the authorities and fate are conspiring to keep them apart. It’s a lovely, lyrical tale told against an even more lovely, lyrical backdrop (our review) and we’ve got a few Blu-ray copies of the movie for some lucky readers. So how do you win?
