Reelblack has two exiting contests this week–passes to see SHAME, the sophomore feature from Steve McQueeen and (on the opposite side of the spectrum) DVDs of THE HELP, which is in stores now.

Michael Fassbender stars in black British director Steve McQueen’s brilliant, sexy and explicit follow-up to HUNGER.

Brandon is a 30-something man living in New York who is unable to manage his sex life. After his wayward younger sister moves into his apartment, Brandon’s world spirals out of control. From director Steve McQueen (Hunger), Shame is a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.

PLEASE NOTE: Rated NC-17 for some explicit sexual content.

Reelblack is giving away 3 passes for two good for any screening at the Ritz 5 during its run of engagement after Monday.

Also, Reelblack is giving away 2 copies of the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack of THE HELP, one of this summer’s biggest hits.

A 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black servants behind some of her community’s most prominent families. Skeeter (Emma Stone) has just graduated from college, and she’s eager to launch her career as a writer. In a moment of inspiration, Skeeter decides to focus her attention on the black female servants who work in her community. Her first subject is Aibileen (Viola Davis), the devoted housekeeper who has been employed by Skeeter’s best friend’s family for years. By speaking with Aibileen, Skeeter becomes an object of scorn to the wealthy locals, who view her actions as directly challenging to the established social order. Before long, even more servants are coming forward to tell their stories, and Skeeter discovers that friendship can blossom under the most unlikely of circumstances. Bryce Dallas Howard co-stars in a touching tale of race relations based on author Kathryn Stockett’s best-selling novel of the same name.
