Giveaway: Red Hill

After whining for some time that Aussie companies, don't 'get' Social Media, MIA has been pleasantly surprised to have had some positive interest recently.

Several cool PR companies have been kind enough to give me hot products to review and/or giveaway.

In fact, I will soon be gettng some ice-cream. ICE-CREAM people! And not just any ice-cream ... Stay tuned).

In the meantime, Sony Pictures Australia have generously given me three double passes to a screening of the upcoming Aussie movie Red Hill.

Here's the synopsis:

Young police officer Shane Cooper (Ryan Kwanten) relocates to the small country town of Red Hill with his pregnant wife Alice (Claire van der Boom) to start a family.
But when news of a prison break sends the local law enforcement officers - led by the town’s ruling presence Old Bill (Steve Bisley) – into a panic, Shane’s first day on duty rapidly turns into a nightmare.
Enter Jimmy Conway (Tom E. Lewis), a convicted murderer serving life behind bars, who has returned to the isolated outpost seeking revenge.
Now caught in the middle of what will become a terrifying and bloody confrontation, Shane will be forced to take the law into his own hands if he is to survive.

The trailor features loads of scenes showing Ryan Kwanten looking Very Hot Indeed. (A little eye candy for the ladies never hurts). And of Steve Bisley looking wrinkly and concerned. Tom E. Lewis looks suitably scary, while the only footage I remember of Claire van der Boom was of her pashing the Very Hot Indeed Ryan.

Seriously, it gave me goosebumps. You can check it out here.

In the interests of Full Disclosure, I must admit I gave one of the double passes to @Bern_Morley's Great Melbourne Cup Twitter Sweepstakes.

So that leaves two double passes to a screening of Red Hill on Monday 22 November at 6.30pm at the BCC Myer Centre Cinemas.

If you're lucky enough to be able to get to the screening, leave a comment saying who your favourite Aussie actor (or actress) is and why. Winners drawn Friday November 12 noon, AEST.

I really don't have a fav as I love most all Aussie Actors/Actresses.

Toni Collette. She always chooses to portray characters that are quirky, intense, unconventional, vulnerable-yet-strong women and she gives the roles such depth and grace. It's hard not to care about the people she brings to life.

I absolutely love Nicole Kidman, she sold out for a while with that Risky Business bloke but I am glad she has come back into the Australian fold. She is always so stylish & self composed.

Oh I like both of those. Nicole can be annoying sometimes with all the surgery which she denies having - but she has always acted with grace and dignity where her private life is concerned, still comes home to visit her sister and parents, and yes, seems remarkably down to earth these days. Never dished the dirt on Tom, even though she could have made loads of money and boosted her fame doing so. I assume she has gotten her Aussieness back since meeting her lovely hubby. And Toni is a class act all the way.
