You can’t go home again, but Abigail Brooks (Sarah Megan Thomas) is finding that perhaps she just might want to in Ben Hickernell‘s Backwards. Co-starring Dawson Leery himself (James Van Der Beek), Hickernell’s film (which Thomas has also written and produced) centers on Abigail, an Olympic class rower who is ticked off when she’s chosen as an alternate for the U.S. Olympic team. Angry and sad, Abigail quits the team and heads home to coach the crew team at her old high school. Regressive? Did we tell you that Van Der Beek plays her old boyfriend, who is also working at their high school? Perhaps the past is worth a visit.
In support of the theatrical release of Backwards, we’re giving away two (2) signed posters from the film to two (count ‘em, two!) lucky readers. The standard one-sheet poster has been signed by James Van Der Beek, Margaret Colin, Sarah Thomas, and director Ben Hickernell.
To win one (1) signed poster from Ben Hickernell’s Backwards, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite film about sports (and feel free to get as creative with your interpretation of “sports” as you’d like). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Friday, September 21st, at 8:00PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one signed Backwards poster as described above. After the break, check out a look at the poster (this version is unsigned) and the film’s official trailer.
Backwards opens on Friday, September 21st.
