Win tickets to Nicole Kidman’s new movie “Queen of the Desert”

The wonderful people at Transmission Films have given us 8x Double Passes to giveaway to see “Queen of the Desert” starring Nicole Kidman, James Franco and Robert Pattinson. A true story based on the life of British explorer and adventurer Gertrude Bell, Queen of the Desert chronicles her journey of love and loss in the Middle East during the early 20th century.


We’re thrilled to share this exciting  film with breathtaking cinematography with the Lovelly Communications audience.


A curious and adventurous young woman eager to explore the world outside of England, Gertrude Bell (Kidman) goes to the British embassy in Tehran where she quickly falls in love with a secretary of the embassy, Henry Cadogan (Franco). This sparks the beginning of a life-long adventure among the beautiful but misunderstood peoples and cultures of the Middle East. Along the way, her path intersects with archaeologist T.E. Lawrence (Pattinson) also known as Lawrence of Arabia, and Major Charles Doughty-Wylie (Damian Lewis), the British Consul General in the Ottoman Empire.


The film will be out in Australian cinemas June 2nd. You can view the trailer here:

  1. I went on a 1 week university mountaineering trip to New Zealand despite having vertigo in order to impress a boy and despite my fear of heights being an utter embarrassment, 15 years later we’re still together which has most certainly been an epic adventure !

  2. I drove my friend to a homeless shelter where she volunteered and while helping her bring lots of old blankets and clothes inside ended up talking to the shelter manager, several years and my friend has long since stopped volunteering but I’m still working there regularly at weekends and one evening a week. It’s often confronting work but a very enriching and humbling experience.

  3. About six years I flew to Australia from Europe for a two-week holiday. How silly of me, to think I could see Australia in two weeks. Well, I’m still here, and now a fully fledged citizen, and I still have so much to see. Next stop will be Tasmania I think! It has certainly been life changing and Australia continues to offer one epic adventure after another.

  4. I went on a short trip to Japan when I was fifteen for 2 months. My host family were awesome and I fell in love with the country, the food and a certain Peruvian man who I later married. Two months turned into three years and my epic relationship with Japan continues to this day – now more than twenty years later. Within those first two years, I had summit end Mt Fuji at age 16 without any training, just fuelled by adrenaline and teenage bravado. I also caught a local train from the south right up to the northern most point, within view of Russia on a clear day. There are just too many mini adventures to mention but all were life changing! Now I get to do it all with my son (currently on his first adventure in South America!).

  5. We’d been home for a couple of weeks after getting married in Las Vegas and honeymooning in Hawaii. I was feeling a bit strange, but hubby told me I must just be pre-menstrual. Well, I decided to take the short walk to the chemist and buy a pregnancy test kit, just to check … Result?? Positive! In disbelief, I walked back to the chemist to buy another test kit to double check. Same result! Yes we were pregnant and it’s been nearly 10 years since our two became three and we welcomed a beautiful daughter.

  6. I decided to visit Egypt a few years back, and thanks to my friend who at the time was studying modern history at uni, he persuaded me to visit Syria to see the crusader castles where TE Lawrence trekked in the 1910s. A very touristy trip turned into an adventure that was genuinely culturally illuminating and unforgettable
