A highlight of last year's London Film Festival, director Robert Redford's sizzling drama Lions for Lambs comes to DVD on the 21st April. Filmed in real time, it cuts between three conversations - a right-wing hawk senator (Tom Cruise) selling a story to journalist (Meryl Streep), a college professor (Redford himself) challenging his bright but apathetic top student, and two soldiers in dire peril in Afghanistan.
Lions for Lambs divided the critics on its release: some slating it for its talk-heavy approach and near-theatrical style and some accusing it of woolly-thinking liberalism. Over at musicOMH the verdict was very different, however: 5 stars and high praise for an intelligent script tackling both the politicians and the media with sharp eyes. Certainly the performances from three leads made it worth the ticket price alone: Cruise on his finest form as the charismatic but untrustworthy politican, and Streep - as always - imbuing her role with sympathy and intelligence in every frame.
So if you missed it at the cinemas, now's your chance to decide your take on it, because musicOMH has three copies of the DVD to give away to lucky readers in one of our absurdly-easy multiple-choice questions.
