Cape Town - Channel24 movie fans stand the chance of winning tickets to go watch Johnny Depp's new comedy drama, Richard Says Goodbye first before it releases in cinemas on Friday, 2 August.

But first some more information about the movie.


When Richard (Depp), a world weary college professor, is given a life-changing diagnosis he decides to throw all pretense and conventions to the wind and live his life as boldly and freely as possible.

With a biting sense of humour, a reckless streak, and a touch of madness, he binges through every vice - drinking, smoking, sex, and hurling blunt insults at anyone who annoys him, giving him more pleasure than he’s had in years. His rollicking journey and bravura assault on the status quo as he runs out the clock leads him to come to terms with the truth and embrace the people he loves for a final hurrah.



There will be two screenings. One in Cape Town and one in Jozi. Seats are limited. The first 22 people from Jozi and the first 20 from Cape Town to enter will each win 2 tickets.


The screening will take place at Ster-Kinekor Cavendish on 31 July at 20:00.
