Contest: Downton Abbey, Seasons 1 and 2

posted by Nell Minow

I’m thrilled to have this very special limited edition release to give away to one lucky fan.  Downton Abbey Seasons 1 and 2 will be released on Oct 2.  While we wait until January for Season 3 (now showing in the UK), you can enjoy Seasons 1 and 2, as the Earl and Countess of Grantham and their three beautiful and headstrong (and impeccably dressed) daughters try to find a way to keep their home despite the laws that require inheritance only by the male relatives.  Oscar-winner Shirley MacLaine joins the cast for the third season as the mother of the American-born Lady Grantham played by Elizabeth McGovern.

To enter the contest, send me an email at moviemom@moviemom.com with Downton in the subject line and tell me your favorite character in the series.  Don’t forget your address (US addresses only)!  I will pick a winner at random on October 2.  Good luck!
