REINVENTING MARVIN dvd

From the acclaimed French director of The Innocents and Coco Before Chanel is the latest feature inspired by true events from Anne Fontaine. With a stellar cast including rising stars Finnegan Oldfield and Jules Porier and Isabelle Huppert in a cameo role as herself, Reinventing Marvin tells the story of an impoverished boy’s journey as he escapes his village to make something of himself with guidance from three influential figures he meets along the way.

Marvin Bijou has escaped the little village in the countryside where he grew up. He has escaped his father’s tyranny and his mother’s resignation. He has escaped intolerance, rejection and the bullying he suffered from being singled out as ‘different’. Against all odds, Marvin has found allies - his school principal who introduces him to theatre, his mentor and role model who encourages him to tell his story on the stage and finally Isabelle Huppert, who helps produce and bring his show to life. Marvin will risk everything to create this show which represents so much more than success: it is his path to reinvention.

Peccadillo Pictures release Reinventing Marvin on UK DVD November 5th, and we've got two copies to give away to lucky UK readers.


The winners are:

Adrienne McGroder, Newtownabbey
Adeinne Tonner, Glasgow
