Mira Sorvino


Editor’s note: This contest is now closed. Thank you for participating! You can’t choose your family. You can certainly choose to get away from them, but that doesn’t change who they are and that you’re truly stuck with them forever. In Nancy Savoca’s Union Square, Jenny (Tammy Blanchard) thinks she’s escaped her nutty family (including her sister Lucy and their mom, played by Patti LuPone) after years of estrangement, but when flighty Lucy (Mira Sorvino) suddenly shows up at Jenny’s apartment with some really unexpected news, that all changes. To remind you that, hey, everyone’s family is nuts, we’re giving away one (1) signed poster from Union Square. The standard one-sheet poster has been signed by Mira Sorvino, Tammy Blanchard and director Nancy Savoca. To win one (1) signed poster from Nancy Savoca’s Union Square, all you have to do is jump down into the comments section and let us know the title of your favorite film about dysfunctional families (we’ll leave it to you and your tastes to pick “fun” one). Please also provide your email address in your comment. This contest is only open to U.S. residents. The contest will close on Friday, July 13th, at 8:00PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random to receive one signed Union Square poster as described above. After the break, check out a look at the poster (this version is unsigned) and the film’s official trailer.


Mira Sorvino

Many people may off-handedly say they want to kill their mother, but the two sisters who were the subject of Toronto Star reporter Bob Mitchell’s book “The Class Project: How to Kill a Mother: The True Story of Canada’s Infamous Bathtub Girls,” well, they were pretty serious about it. The book tells the story of a pair of girls whose lives had been torturous for as long as they could remember due to the various abuses committed against them by their alcoholic mom and her string of sleazy boyfriends, so they hatched a scheme to rub mommy out and collect the insurance money. First time director Stanley M. Brooks has already got Abigail Breslin (Zombieland) and Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia) signed on to play the sisters in a film adaptation, and now Variety is reporting that Oscar winning actress Mira Sorvino has just joined the cast in the role of the abusive mother.
