Win tickets to Penguin Bloom!

Penguin Bloom tells the true story of Sam Bloom (Academy Award® nominated Naomi Watts) a young mother whose world is turned upside down after a near-fatal accident leaves her unable to walk. Releasing to Australian and New Zealand cinemas on January 21, the film is based on the award-winning photography book, Penguin Bloom by Cameron Bloom.

Sam’s husband, (Andrew Lincoln), her three young boys and her mother (Academy Award® nominated Jacki Weaver), are struggling to adjust to their new situation when an unlikely ally enters their world in the form of an injured baby magpie they name Penguin. The bird’s arrival is a welcome distraction for the Bloom family, eventually making a profound difference in the family’s life. Penguin the Magpie now has 169K followers on Instagram.
