French, Film and Fashion: The "Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life" Sneak Preview GIVEAWAY


As I was flipping through the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, I read a short blurb about the film, Gainesbourg: A Heroic Life, which also included a photo of the French pop music and culture icon Serge Gainsbourg hugged up with French former model/actress Brigitte Bardot. I would later learn that in addition to Brigitte Bardot, Serge Gainsbourg was romantically involved with Jane Birkin. Yes. THE Jane Birkin for which the iconic Hermes "Birkin" bag was named. A critically acclaimed independent film that also references historical fashion figures? I was certainly intrigued.

So, when Music Box Films contacted me for an invite to the sneak preview of the film, I was thrilled! Even more exciting is the fact that Music Box has given me the opportunity to invite my readers to the sneak preview as well. That means you could win the chance to view the film, in an intimate setting, almost TWO weeks before the official opening on October 28th!


I have 2 pairs of tickets to give away. So, who's going to join me?!

Hi Nikia,

Thank you so much for the post and setting up the give-away~

I'd love to have the opportunity to go to the preview:) Gosh Shakeia before me has already said the obvious reason so what more could I say? ;-P mmmmm well on a more personal level last two times I was at the Music Box Theater, once was for Bill Cunningham NY, and the other for L'Amour Fou (the documentary about Yves Saint Laurent). Both were such beautiful and unforgettable experiences (add to that it was when I met lovely Nikia for the first time^ ^) and hence I really look forward to the hopes of being there again and meeting Nikia:)
