Competition: Win a Gary Oldman themed film, book & poster bundle!

To mark the BFI‘s fantastic tribute to Gary Oldman this month, we have a wonderful prize bundle to give away to one lucky reader!

The competition bundle includes:  A Blu-ray copy of Nil by Mouth – released on Blu-ray for the first time anywhere in the world; Copies of Mick Herron‘s bestselling Slough House novels, which have been adapted into a major Apple TV series called Slow Horses starring Gary Oldman. Titles include Slow Horses, the book that inspired the first Apple TV series starring Oldman as Jackson Lamb, and Dead Lions, the book that inspired the second season of the series; and a copy of the Gary Oldman BFI Southbank Poster!

Gary Oldman revealed himself as a filmmaker of uncompromising talent with Nil by Mouth, his debut and so far only directorial feature. Set on a council estate in New Cross, south-east London (the area where Oldman himself grew up), a dysfunctional family encounters domestic violence, drunkenness, drug addiction and petty crime. Featuring career-best performances from Kathy Burke (winner of Best Actress at Cannes), Ray Winstone and Charlie Creed-Miles, all superbly supported by Laila Morse and Jamie Foreman, Nil by Mouth was awarded Best British Film and Best Original Screenplay at the 1998 BAFTA awards.

This intensely powerful and emotional landmark of British film has been remastered in 4K for its 25th anniversary by the BFI National Archive and is director-approved.
