Time for a Freebie to A Little Chaos

Posted Monday 02 Mar 2015

This looks like a lovely romp and we have FIVE double passes to giveaway. Just tell us the title of the NZ film that launched Winslet's career. Email answers only in the subject line to: by Friday 6 March 5 pm.

The film opens March 12 across NZ.

About the film: The world's greatest landscape architect - Le Notre (Matthias Schoenaerts) - designer of the Versailles gardens - is unfulfilled in love. Madame Sabine de Bara (Kate Winslet) is pioneering and fiercely independent - her visionary ideas for design seem anarchic to King Louis' (Alan Rickman) formal court.

It takes a little chaos for nature to blossom and love to heal and ignite.
