An advance screening of Summit Entertainment's upcoming action-drama Snitch, has been set up for next week Thursday, February 21, 7PM at the Showplace Icon in Chicago, IL, and we've been allotted 25 free passes to hand out to S&A readers for that screening.

Dwayne Johnson stars as a father whose teenage son is wrongly accused of a drug distribution crime and is looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 years. Desperate and determined to rescue his son at all costs, he makes a deal with the U.S. attorney to work as an undercover informant and infiltrate a drug cartel on a dangerous mission, risking everything, including his family and his own life.

Michael K. Williams co-stars as a narcotics kingpin with a short temper who becomes involved with Johnson's character.

Benjamin Bratt and Susan Sarandon also co-star in a film that is said to be based on a real life PBS Frontline documentary.

The film is directed by Ric Roman Waugh.

Snitch is set to be released on February 22, but you can see it a day early, on February 21. To qualify for 1 of the 25 passes, all you have to do is, in the spirit of the movie's themes, name a film that touches on any one of the following themes:

- Stresses the importance of strong fathers and role models.

- Stresses the importance of being oneself/staying true to self.

- Features a character who takes a stand for something they believe in

Just pick one of those themes and name a film that fits. You can do so right in the comment section below. Assuming there are more than 25 responses, I'll randomly select 25 winners from them.

NOTE: Each single pass admits 2 people! So you can take someone along with you if you win.

You have until next Monday, February 18 to enter, so dig in.

Here's the trailer again:

    This is like taking candy from a baby. All the themes speak directly to the one and only Madea and most of Tyler Perry's films. I know... I know, one has to go deep to find those hidden messages, but, they are there.

    However, my hold cards says Steve McQueen's "Hunger". Bobby Sands ( Michael Fassbender) gave the ultimate sacrifice for something he believed in. And, it was a great film.

    Stresses the importance of strong fathers and role models.--->Boyz N The Hood - without a doubt. Despite the circumstances of their physical environment, Furious Styles was DETERMINED to not let Trey become a statistic. And it worked.

    Michael Jai White in my guilty pleasure movie Blood and Bone he became a strong father figure for Nona Gaye's son in the movie and he took a stand for what he believed in by forfeiting his victory at the end of the movie essentially winning by losing of his own decision after proving he could beat the top fighter I. A fight he was forced into.
