Contest Giveaway: DVD & Soundtrack For 'Dirty Girl' Starring Juno Temple

To say that Juno Temple is one of our favorite young actresses would be an understatement. In her brief career thus far, Temple has shown a knack for taking on challenging material and working with visionary directors, having chalked up time with folks like Gregg Araki, Noah Baumbach and Joe Wright. And in 2012 there is even more to come, with the actress starring in films from Christopher Nolan, William Friedkin and Jonas Akerlund among others. Before 2011 wrapped up, Temple played a lead in the indie dramedy "Dirty Girl," alongside an ace cast including Milla Jovovich, Dwight Yoakam, Mary Steenburgen and William H. Macy. If you missed it, we've got a second chance for you.

Dirty Girl Juno Temple

To say that Juno Temple is one of our favorite young actresses would be an understatement. In her brief career thus far, Temple has shown a knack for taking on challenging material and working with visionary directors, having chalked up time with folks like Gregg Araki, Noah Baumbach and Joe Wright. And in 2012 there is even more to come, with the actress starring in films from Christopher Nolan, William Friedkin and Jonas Akerlund among others. Before 2011 wrapped up, Temple played a lead in the indie dramedy "Dirty Girl," alongside an ace cast including Milla Jovovich, Dwight Yoakam, Mary Steenburgen and William H. Macy. If you missed it, we've got a second chance for you.

The film tells the story of Danielle (Temple), the dirty girl of Norman High School in Norman, Oklahoma, circa 1987. Her reputation takes an unexpected hit when her misbehavior gets her banished to a remedial class, where she is paired on a parenting project with Clarke (Jeremy Dozier), an innocent closet-case with no friends. When her mother (Milla Jovovich) announces her engagement to her family-minded boyfriend (William H. Macy), mortified Danielle vows to get to California to find the father she’s never met. Meanwhile, Clarke is desperate to escape being sent to military school by his homophobic dad (Yoakam) and repressed mom (Steenburgen), prompting the pair to make a getaway on a cross-country road trip. To help cement the '80s setting, "Dirty Girl" boasts a solid soundtrack featuring Pat Benatar, four tunes by Melissa Manchester, Sheen Easton, Teena Marie, Wendy & Lisa and Bow Wow Wow.

Well, we're giving one lucky reader a chance to catch up with "Dirty Girl" as we've got a DVD and soundtrack to give away. So how do you win? Email us with your name and mailing address and tell us in which movie Juno Temple played Cate Blanchett's daughter. Good luck!

Update: Contest closed, winner will be contacted via email. "Dirty Girl" is on DVD and BluRay right now. Contest open to U.S. residents only.
