Thanks to our generous friends at Transmission Films, we're giving our members the chance to WIN an in-season double pass to DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN, starring Travis Fimmel, Luke Bracey, Richard Roxburgh and Daniel Webber.

We have 10 double passes for Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra up for grabs - that's 60 double passes in total!.

August 18, 1966. Late Afternoon. South Vietnam. For three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives. They're holding off an overwhelming force of 2,000 battle-hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers.

With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting, and the enemy massing for a final assault, each man begins to search for the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage. 18 Australians and at least 250 enemy were killed, with some estimations being over 500.

The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most savage and decisive engagements in Australian military history, earning both the United States and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit Citations for gallantry along with many individual awards.

DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN is a nail-biting and dramatic exploration of war illustrating heroism, tragedy and the sacrifice of battle.

To celebrate the release of DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN in cinemas August 8, WeekendNotes subscribers have the chance to win an in-season double pass.

To go into the draw, all you have to do is send an email titled 'DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN' to competitions@weekendnotes.com and let us know in 25 words or less why you want to see this anticipated film.
