Competition: Two Faces of January *closed*

Kirsten Dunst, Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and The Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen make up the central triumvirate of The Two Faces of January (2014), a handsome sixties-set thriller adapted from The Talented Mr. Ripley scribe Patricia Highsmith’s novel of the same name by Hossein Amini, who makes his directorial debut. To celebrate the eagerly anticipated DVD and Blu-ray release of The Two Faces of January this coming Monday (15 September), we have THREE Blu-ray copies of Amini’s film to give away, kindly provided by the fine folk at StudioCanal.

A glamorous American couple, the charismatic Chester MacFarland (Mortensen) and his alluring younger wife Collette (Dunst), are in Athens during a European vacation. While sightseeing at the Acropolis they encounter Rydal (Isaac), a young, Greek-speaking American who is working as a tour guide. Drawn to Colette’s beauty and impressed by Chester’s wealth and sophistication, Rydal gladly accepts their invitation to dinner. However, all is not as it seems with the MacFarlands, Chester’s affable exterior hides darker secrets. As events take a sinister turn, Rydal finds himself compromised and entangled as an accomplice to a crime committed by Chester. Their journey takes them from Greece to Turkey, and to a dramatic finale played out in the back alleys of Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar.
