This week we’re swapping bookmarks for ticket stubs as we offer up 10 double passes to Lapsis – in cinemas from 3 June 2021. Lapsis has been hailed by critics as “a smart, class-conscious sci-fi parable” whose “cult status is assured”. In bringing it to life, writer/director Noah Hutton's intricate world-building and storytelling are masterful and Dean Imperial's performance as Ray is a revelation.

Check out the trailer:

And here’s the synopsis:

Set in an alternative New York, the quantum computing revolution has begun, and investors are lining their pockets. However, building the network requires miles of infrastructure to be laid between huge magnetic cubes by “cablers”, a group of unprotected gig workers who have to compete against robots to pull wires over rough terrain.

Delivery man Ray Tincelli is both sceptical and suspicious of this new technology. However, to support himself and his ailing younger brother, he scores a shady permit and starts cabling, hoping to finally change his fortunes. What he doesn't expect is to be pulled into a conspiracy involving hostile fellow cablers, corporate greed and the mystery surrounding someone called Lapsis Beeftech, who may have previously owned his permit. Lapsis provides a darkly comic, original and timely perspective of the gig economy and the failed utopian promises of big tech.

Keen to get your hands on a double pass? All you need to do is come up with AN ALTERNATIVE NAME FOR THE CITY OF NEW YORK. It could be funny or serious. The three names we like best will WIN a double pass to see the film.

Entries close midday Monday 31 May 2021, Sydney/Melbourne time.
