Happy Friday my dear foodies! Thanks to Hopscotch Films, I’m running a competition for an upcoming French comedy-drama, Little White Lies.
The film stars Oscar winner Marion Cotillard and is about a group of friends who take yearly holidays away from Paris. Fun, fine wine and seafood mix with sun and sand as they all leave their city stresses and inhibitions behind.
But this year, before they leave, their buddy Ludo is in a serious accident. Assured by doctors there is nothing they can do, they decide to head off on vacation. This sets off a dramatic chain of reactions as their relationships, loyalty, secrets and friendship are pulled apart and dragged together. Little White Lies is an entertaining and finely observed drama that walks the line between laughter and tears.
I haven’t seen it yet as I’m waiting for the advance screenings but here’s the trailer –

Up for grabs are 5 preview double passes – valid for the weekend prior (from Friday June 10 to Sunday June 12 inclusive) to the wide release which is June 16.
For your chance to win, simply leave a comment in 25 words or less, answering the following question:

If you could go anywhere in the world for one week of fun and good food, where would it be and why?
