Beauty and the Dirt has teamed up with American Express to offer one lucky person the chance to win a pair of tickets to a screening of the hotly anticipated Half a Yellow Sun on Saturday 19th October at 17:45 at the Odeon West End in Leicester Square as part of the 57th BFI London Film Festival.

Half of a Yellow Sun

Half of a Yellow Sun

Half a Yellow Sun, writer and director Biyi Bandele’s excellent feature debut, is an epic love story set in Nigeria on the eve of the disastrous civil war of the late 1960s. An astute adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s highly acclaimed novel of the same name, Bandele’s screenplay brings the source material’s main characters to vibrant realisation. As chaos engulfs them, they are thrown together and violently torn apart in ways none had ever imagined.

And, while 31% of Brits name romance/love as their favourite film genre*, the Festival has something for everyone. Running from 9th– 20th October and showcasing a diverse programme of 369 international films, the Festival will play host to over 400,000 film buffs with approximately 32,400 minutes of film shown over the twelve day celebration of cinema.

Early on sale tickets to screenings, events and walking the red carpet are just some of the enriched experiences available to American Express Cardmembers at the Festival.
