Movie + Book Prize Pack Giveaway: The Way Back

Update: our winners have been selected! Congratulations to Whitney, Leonor, and Simmie, your prize packs are on the way, courtesy of Alliance Films. The contest is now closed.

Bookclub-in-a-Box is happy to offer our Toronto readers the opportunity to see the upcoming film The Way Back, which hits theatres on Friday, January 21. This new war film, directed by six-time Oscar nominee Peter Weir, was inspired by the book The Long Walk by SÅ‚awomir Rawicz, a real former Polish POW in the Soviet Gulag. The movie stars Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe, 21), Colin Farrell (Crazy Heart, In Bruges), and Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind, Gone Baby Gone) as a group of POWs trying to escape the camp where they’re being held, and features Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, Atonement) as Irena, a young, orphaned Polish girl who joins the fugitives on their journey.
