Singapore International Film Festival contest

Email The Butter Factory with your name and tel number to win a pair of tickets to The Wackness. Remember to indicate "SIFF Contest" in your subject header!

Contest ends 25 April 2009.

Set against the streets of New York, when mayor Giuliani’s first term was in full swing, this film features a lonely teenager named Luke Shapiro who finishes his last days before university peddling marijuana, trading it with his kindly but unorthodox psychotherapist for treatment, while harbouring a crush on his stepdaughter. Played by Ben Kingsley, the therapist struggles to fix his own failing marriage, as Luke wonders if his parents will stop acting like children, or if he may ever beat his own depression and get laid. This sweet and hopeful film, pulsing to the soundtrack of classic hip hop standards, is directed by Jonathan Levine and won the Audience Award at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. It is the portrait of a young man who sees only the “wack,” or dismal, side of life, and never the “dope,” or optimistic parts
