Competition: Win ‘The Last Summer of La Boyita’ on DVD *closed*

Thanks to the top folk at London’s Peccadillo Pictures, we have THREE copies of Julia Solomonoff’s visually-stunning and beautifully-acted Argentinian drama The Last Summer of La Boyita (2009) to give away to our lucky readers, ahead of the film’s long-awaited UK DVD release on 23 April. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook fans, so if you haven’t already, head over to, ‘Like’ us, and then follow the instructions below.

The Last Summer of La Boyita is a tender portrayal of the unexpected revelations that affect two children as they begin the transition to adolescence. ‘La Boyita’, a little bubble-shaped caravan, has always been a place of refuge, games and confessions for Jorgelina (Guadalupe Alonso) and her older sister Luciana (María Clara Merendino). As Luciana enters puberty she begins to seek privacy and independence from her adoring sibling. Rather than tag along after her sister at the beach, Jorgelina decides to spend her summer holidays with her father in the country. There she develops a close friendship with Mario (Nicolás Treise), a local farm boy and jockey. As the children explore the sun-drenched surrounds and each other, they begin to question the similarities they share, and what makes them different.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE DVD copies of The Last Summer of La Boyita, just answer the following simple question.

What was the name of Julia Solomonoff’s 2005 debut feature?
