COMP CLOSED: ‘The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece’ by Tom Hanks

Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, Sleepless in Seattle – these are just a few movies the author of this week’s giveaway starrs in. But Tom Hanks is more than just an Academy Awards winning actor, he’s also a writer. After his best-selling story collection Uncommon Type, Hanks is back with his latest novel The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece and we have three copies to give away. Here’s the blurb:

A wildly ambitious story of the making of a colossal, star-studded, multimillion-dollar superhero action film, and the humble comic book that inspired it all.

Spanning 80 years of a changing America and culminating in the opening of the film, we meet a colourful cast of characters including a troubled soldier returning from war, a young boy with an artistic gift, an inspired and eccentric director, a pompous film star on the rise, a tireless production assistant and countless film crew members that together create Hollywood magic.

Funny, touching, and wonderfully thought-provoking, The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece offers an insider's take on the momentous efforts it takes to make a film. At once a reflection on America's past and present, on the world of show business and the real world we all live in.

If you’d like to win a copy, simply tell us in ONE sentence what your favourite movie is and why. Our favourite three entries will win a copy!

Entries close midday (Syd/Melb time) Monday 15 May.

THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES! WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED BY EMAIL AND ANNOUNCED IN OUR NEWSLETTER.
