Usually when we put together a giveaway here on Film School Rejects, it’s something simple. A copy of a new movie on DVD, a poster for an upcoming indie signed by its headlining star, sometimes even books. All of these are fine giveaways that have attracted a number of entries. But none of them are quite as good as this one. The folks at Magnolia Pictures came to us in the hopes that we’d want to give you something that may spur you on to check out Lars von Trier’s odyssey of sexuality Nymphomaniac. And while we initially wanted to give away a riding crop, we’ve found something better: a way for you to actually watch the movie.
One lucky reader will win an Apple TV and a $20 iTunes gift card that can be used to rent both Nymphomaniac: Volume I and Volume II. All you have to do to be entered into the contest is be a subscriber to The Weekly Edition, our weekly email service that will keep you filled in on all the best of Film School Rejects. Instructions are below.
For those who are not already subscribers, you can enter by filling out the form below (and don’t forget to confirm your email address — only confirmed subscribers will be considered for the giveaway):
For more information about Nymphomaniac, here are links to each film’s iTunes page:
Nymphomaniac: Volume I is the story of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is discovered badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who takes her into his home. As he tends to her wounds, she recounts the erotic story of her adolescence and young-adulthood (portrayed in flashback by newcomer Stacy Martin). Nymphomaniac: Volume I is now available on iTunes and in theaters.
Nymphomaniac: Volume II picks up with the story of Joe’s adulthood, where her journey of self-discovery leads to darker complications. Nymphomaniac: Volume II is now available on iTunes and will be in theaters April 4th.
