CineVue has teamed up with American Express to offer one lucky person the chance to win a pair of tickets to a screening of US crime drama The Drop (2014) on Saturday 11 October at Odeon West End 2 Cinema (6pm) as part of the 58th BFI London Film Festival. Based on a story by acclaimed American crime writer Dennis Lehane, The Drop is a smart and thrilling work featuring a standout performance by Tom Hardy and directed by Belgian Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead). Running from 8-19 October, LFF will showcase a diverse programme of British and international films in seventeen of the capital’s cinemas. 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.

Roskam’s The Drop follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) through a covert scheme of funnelling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (a fantastic turn from the late, great James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the centre of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighbourhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to see The Drop on Saturday 11 October at the BFI London Film Festival, just answer the following simple question:

Which of Dennis Lehane’s novels was made into a film by director Martin Scorsese in 2010?

a) Coronado: Stories
