Closed: Win an exclusive T-Shirt from the film Albatross

Albatross.jpgThe British film Albatross is due in cinemas on the 14th of October and to celebrate the fact I've been given five t-shirts to give away, exclusively from the film itself and worn by one of the leads, Jessica Brown Findlay.

The shirts are rather cheeky and funny and look fantastic, plus you could be walking around with a t-shirt direct from the film which also stars Felicity Jones, Sebastian Koch and Julia Ormond.

Before we get to the prizes, here's a bit about Albatross.

A fresh, modern-day coming-of-age tale focusing on seventeen year old force of nature Emelia (newcomer Jessica Brown Findlay) who bursts into the lives of the dysfunctional Fischer family when she is hired to work in their guest house in a sleepy town on the South Coast of England. Beth Fischer (Felicity Jones), also seventeen, is cramming for her A-Levels, in a desperate bid to escape to University, whilst dad Jonathan (Sebastian Koch), once a best-selling author, is suffering from writer's block much to the annoyance of frustrated mum Joa (Julia Ormond) who runs the guest house and laments the promising acting career she left behind.

Emelia has been brought up by her grandparents but has a strained relationship with her GRANDPA (Peter Vaughan). She is an aspiring writer; believing she is following in the footsteps of her great-grandfather Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle. Jonathan sees promise in Emelia and begins to tutor her, as Beth becomes closer with her forthright friend and decides to take her along on a visit to Oxford University - with hilariously raucous results.

As Emelia's confidence and free-spirit help Beth learn to enjoy life beyond studying, Emelia too is inspired by Beth's determination and focus and she begins to see a way to break through her self-destructive tendencies. However, when Emelia and Jonathan begin an illicit affair, the girls' friendship is threatened.

Can Emelia and Beth escape the ties of small town existence and free themselves of the Albatrosses around their necks?

You can find out more about the film on the official Facebook page for Albatross, and you can see a trailer for the film right here on Filmstalker, a trailer which definitely drew my interest to the film, and if I could get away with it I'd be after one of the shirts!

Now, the prize, five t-shirts up for grabs, just like the one below:


How cool is that?
