To celebrate the release of Herself, we’re giving away 10 double passes to the advanced screening so you and a friend can see it before anyone else.

From the director of The Iron Lady and Mamma Mia!, Phyllida Lloyd, and starring up-and-coming Irish actor Clare Dunne (Spider-Man: Far from Home), Herself brings us a powerful Irish film about one woman’s ability to dream big.

Set to hit the big screens around the country on Thursday, July 1st, we’re giving 10 lucky movie fans (and 10 very lucky friends) the chance to head along to the advanced screening of Herself on Tuesday, June 22nd, at the Palace Norton Street cinema in Sydney.

For your chance to win, all you have to do is subscribe to the Film & TV Observer newsletter, it’s that easy.

Written by the film’s star, Dunne, Herself follows the story of a young mother seeking to rebuild her life and provide a safe home for her two young daughters. The inspirational drama which explores domestic voilence themes, shows the young mother overcome many hurdles: escaping the grip of a possessive ex-partner, circumnavigating a broken housing system, and bringing together a community of friends to support her.

As described in the official synopsis:

Single-mother Sandra (Clare Dunne) escapes her abusive partner with her two young children, only to find herself trapped in temporary accommodation. After months of struggling, she draws inspiration from one of her daughter’s bedtime stories and hits upon the idea of self-building an affordable home. She finds an architect who provides her with plans and is offered land by Peggy (Harriet Walter), a woman she cleans for. Aido (Conleth Hill), a building contractor, appears willing to help too. But as her past rears its head, in the form of Gary (Ian Lloyd Anderson), her possessive ex, and as bureaucrats fight back against her independent spirit, will Sandra be able to rebuild her life from the ground up.


If you’re a fan of other inspiring, women-lead, powerful Irish films like Brooklyn (2015), this is most certainly the film of the year for you.
