Courtesy of the good folks at Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, CultureMob is offering a special giveaway for A Late Quartet on Blu-ray.  Rather than summarize the plot of this drama myself, I’ll leave that job to Fox’s official synopsis.

Academy Award Winners Christopher Walken and Philip Seymour Hoffman* strike all the right chords with Academy Award Nominee Catherine Keener** and Mark Ivanir in this powerful story that blends raw emotion with fiery passion to form an unforgettable cinematic masterpiece.  After 25 years together, the members of a world-renowned string quartet learn that their beloved cellist (Walken) may soon be forced to retire. But the news stirs up equally painful challenges when competing egos, harbored resentment, and irrepressible lust threaten to derail the group as they struggle to maintain harmony in their music ‹ and their lives.

*Walken, Supporting Actor, The Deer Hunter, 1978. Hoffman, Actor, Capote, 2005.

**Supporting Actress, Capote, 2005; Supporting Actress, Being John Malkovich, 1999.

And I have two copies of the Blu-ray to give away.  It’s very simple.  To qualify for the discs, email me at, put “A Late Quartet Blu-ray Giveaway” in the email subject line, provide your first and last name, and correctly answer the following question.

  • Stars Catherine Keener and Philip Seymour Hoffman did not appear together in which of the following films?
    a) Capote b) Please Give c) Synecdoche, New York

Easy-peasy.  I’m going to stop taking entries at 8 PM EST next week on Friday, February 1st, so get your answers in before then.  A Late Quartet makes its Blu-ray debut on February 5th, and Fox Home Entertainment will send out giveaway copies shortly after that date.

Only contestants within the United States and Canada are eligible, and entering the same name under multiple email addresses will get you disqualified.  P.O. box addresses will not be accepted.  If you win the giveaway and send me a P.O. box, you will be disqualified.

Good luck, and enjoy!
