Competition: Win ‘My Brother the Devil’ *closed*

British gangland drama My Brother the Devil (2012) has put the spotlight firmly on writer/director Sally El Hosaini – winner of the Best British Newcomer award at last year’s BFI London Film Festival – and has established her as one of the UK’s boldest and brightest new filmmaking talents. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of El Hosaini’s My Brother the Devil on Monday 18 March, we’ve kindly been provided with THREE Blu-ray copies of the film to give away to our valued readers, courtesy of distributor Verve Pictures. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Mo (Fady Elsayed) is a young boy growing up in a traditional Egyptian household, but beyond the front door of the family’s modest London flat is a completely different world – the streets of Hackney. The impressionable Mo idolises his handsome and charismatic older brother Rashid (James Floyd) and wants to follow in his footsteps. However, Rashid wants a different life for his little brother and will do what ever it takes to put him through college. Aching to be seen as a tough guy himself, Mo takes a job that unlocks a fateful turn of events and forces the brothers to confront their inner demons.
