Win film passes - 3 to give away.

My friends at Hopscotch Films have generously provided three double passes to the film "Bachelorette" for divacultura readers.*

"Bachelorette" was an official selection in the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and stars Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson.

From Hopscotch Films: 

A group of best friends since high school reunite in Manhattan for the wedding of their pal Becky (Wilson), who they cruelly nickname Pig Face. There's the competitive, Princeton-grad ice-queen Regan (Dunst), who begrudgingly accepts her role as maid of honour despite her horror that her less-attractive friend is getting married before her; cynical wild-child Gena (Caplan), who's determined to confront her high school ex who broke her heart; and the ditzy Katie (Fisher), who is all bubbly exterior until you scratch the surface. 
The single ladies are determined to put their bitterness aside and have an awesomely hedonistic bachelorette party. Armed with razor-sharp insults, a free spirit for fun and a pack of groomsmen, these modern femmes (or mean girls!) embark on one very long and emotional night of misadventure. Bachelorette is the debut feature by writer/director Leslye Headland and is a sassy, funny and sometimes romantic ride that never forgets to celebrate the complexities of female friendship.

You can watch the trailer here.

To win one of three in-season double passes: leave a comment at the end of this blog telling us where you met your oldest friend.  Entries close Saturday 10 November 2012.  Winners will be drawn randomly, announced on the blog and contacted individually.

Good luck!

* Passes are valid even with a "no free tickets" listing at participating Australian cinemas.


  1. Bizarrely, the person that I have known longest, apart from family, that I have any contact with these days, is you. We would have met under the jacaranda trees outside the wards. I vaguely remember we had a discussion about who got what scholarship.

    The person who I physically see regularly that I've know longest is probably my partner. We met on a tourney field in Ballarat doing reenactment medieval sword fighting. He one-shotted me and sent me flying backwards. The next time we met on the field, I one-shotted him, much to the amazement of the crowd and both of us. This combat experience didn't have influence on the later relationship but it did help that we shared a common interest.

  2. I met my oldest friend in the sandpit located in the backyard of the homestead I grew up in. I was 3, she was 2. She pushed over my beautifully crafted multie-tiered sandcastle and I burst into tears. She laughed. We've been crying and laughing ever since. We don't see each other much these days as we live in separate states but we talk every week.

  3. I probably met my oldest friend in the hospital nursery as she is three days older than me and we were born in the same hospital back when birthing moms stayed in for longer than that, but my first memory of her is at kindy. We both liked the reading corner, and the tricycles.

  4. BTW - I had read about this film under its other title, the Wedding Party, and thought I was going to see it last Tuesday, but it turned out that the quaint little cinema at Kingscliffe was showing the current Aussie movie called the Wedding Party.

  5. Congratulations Mousicles, John B. Cahill and Merryn - you've won the passes. Please send me an email with your address and I'll send you your passes. Thanks for sharing such great stories.
