Did You Win A DVD Of Acclaimed British Drama THE VIOLATORS & A Signed Poster?

Helen Walsh's excellent directorial debut The Violators is now on DVD and we've got three copies to give away to UK readers.





Each winner will also receive a poster signed by director Helen Walsh and lead actress Lauren McQueen.


After testifying against her abusive father, Shelly (Lauren McQueen), finds herself rehoused on a sink estate she can barely call home. A petty thief, Shelly spends her days roaming the estate and docklands in search of opportunities. When she attracts the attention of estate loan shark and groomer, Mikey Finnegan (Stephen Lord), Shelly finds herself thrust under the watchful gaze of a mysterious stranger, Rachel (Brogan Ellis). As Shelly's relationship with Mikey develops, so does Rachel's fixation with Shelly. The shock-revelation that Shelly's father is to be given early parole forces Shelly to make a decision that will alter the fates of all three of them forever.

Set amid the desolate beauty of a post-industrial wasteland, The Violators is a meditation on the meaning of home, and the potency and fragility of young girls' sexuality.



The winners are:

Robyn Mckelvie, Cumbernauld
Noreen Dodds, Tottenham
Diana Croos, Coventry
