Does cross-species reincarnation exist? That’s the idea entertained by the period comedy drama Dean Spanley, which comes out on DVD on Monday 27th April. Jeremy Northam, Sam Neill and Peter O’Toole star in this sweetly charming tale about an Edwardian cleric who believes he has had a past life as a dog.
In early-20th-century England, Edwardian gentleman Henslowe Fisk (Northam) runs across Anglican clergyman Dean Spanley (Neill) and becomes intrigued by his eccentric behaviour. On drinking a rare Hungarian wine, the dean appears to recall a past life as a dog. Could he be the reincarnation of the childhood pet owned by Henslowe’s curmudgeonly father (O’Toole)?
We have five copies of Dean Spanley on DVD to give away, courtesy of Icon Home Entertainment. To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question:
Peter O’Toole recently starred in another movie with a doggy theme. Which film was it?
A) The Shaggy Dog
