A Mermaid's TaleIn a strange new world, this mermaid is
a fish out of water..
.

TWELVE-YEAR-OLD RYAN (Caitlin Carmichael) and her dad (Jerry O'Connell) pack up their belongings and move to a seemingly quiet fishing town to live with grandfather Art (Barry Bostwick).

Eager to get to know his granddaughter more, Art tells Ryan local stories and myths of mermaids that live along their shores, but who have never been seen.

Although her dad is a non-believer, Ryan is ready to believe in the magic hidden in her new home, and whilst exploring the local coves and watching a pod of playful dolphins, she meets Coral.

Coral and Ryan become fast friends and it is soon clear that Coral is much more than the average girl, and is, in fact, one of the mermaids that grandfather Art had told Ryan all about.

The truth brings the two girls closer and soon they are working together to save the town as they uncover a powerful secret in this modern-day fairy tale.

Viceroy's HouseViceroy’s House..
.

BASED ON THE TRUE STORY of the final months of British rule in India, Gurinder Chadha's Viceroy's House will release in the UK on Digital Download 24 July 2017 and on Blu-ray and DVD on 7 August 2017. To celebrate, we're giving away a copy on DVD!

The release coincides with the 70th Anniversary of the Independence of India and the founding of Pakistan. After 300 years of British rulers, the last Viceroy, Lord Mountbatten, was charged with handing India back to its people.

It is a story that is deeply personal to Gurinder, whose own family was caught up in the tragic events surrounding the end of The Raj.

The film's story unfolds within the great House. Upstairs lived Mountbatten, his wife, Lady Mountbatten and daughter; downstairs lived their 500 Hindu, Muslim, and Sikh servants.

As the political elite — Nehru, Jinnah and Gandhi — converged on the House to wrangle over the birth of an independent India, conflict erupted and a decision was made whose consequences still reverberate to this day.

The British cast is led by Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Paddington) as Lord Mountbatten; Gillian Anderson (The X Files, The Fall) as his wife, Lady Mountbatten; Lily Travers (Kingsman) as their daughter, Pamela; and Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, Quartet) and Simon Callow (A Room With A View, Four Weddings and a Funeral) as key civil servants.

The Indian and Pakistani cast is led by Manish Dayal (The Hundred Foot Journey), Huma Qureshi (Gangs of Wasseypur) and Om Puri (The Hundred Foot Journey, East Is East).

To be in with the chance of winning, just answer this question: In which year did the Independence of India happen?

A) 1945

B) 1947

C) 1935
