100 free tickets for Dean Spanley screening - Greenwich Picturehouse 11am Dec 7th

Code: 442661

NEWS Shopper has teamed up with See Film First to offer you the chance to see the new comedy-drama Dean Spanley before it opens nationwide.

We have 100 free tickets for a special preview screening at 11am on December 7 at the Greenwich Picture House.

In Dean Spanley, Peter O'Toole stars as a misanthropic curmudgeon who unexpectedly re-lives joyous and painful memories thanks to the revels of a drunken curate.

Set just after the turn of the 20th century and based on the novel by Baron Dunsany, it's full of peculiarly English quirks and ticks.

To relieve the tedium of their regular outings, distanced father and son, Horatio and Henslowe (O'Toole and Jeremy Northam) attend a lecture on the Transmigration of Souls by a visiting Hindu Swami.

There, they meet Dean Spanley (Sam Neill), with whom, after a series of chance encounters, Henslowe strikes up a bizarre friendship.

At dinner he plies the Dean with a rare Hungarian wine, the Imperial Tokay, secured from colonial rogue trader, Wrather (Bryan Brown). In return, Spanley hales forth trance-like reminiscences of a highly unexpected former life. A pre-existence that may just hold the key to the family heartbreak that Horatio is trying to keep repressed.

Dean Spanley is a special film in that uses the wildest imaginings to reveal common emotional truths, warmly presenting them to us so that we can laugh, and perhaps cry, at ourselves.

The film is released nationwide later on December 7.

We have 100 reserved tickets, free to News Shopper readers, for the preview screening.
