The independent film Beowulf & Grendel, starring Gerard Bulter, Stellan Skarsgård, and Sarah Polley, arrived on DVD recently, and to celebrate, I’ve got a copy of the film to give away, courtesy of Union Station Media. Here’s the scoop on the film, from Union Station:

“Beowulf & Grendel” is a medieval adventure, part legendary fable, part horror-story. Based on the seminal 9th century Anglo-Saxon poem, “Beowulf,” it tells the blood-soaked tale of a Norse warrior’s battle against a great and murderous troll, Grendel, who has laid seige to the kingdom of Hrothgar, the much respected king of the Danes.

The story – filmed in Iceland – plays out in a brutish Northern Europe where the reign of the many-gods is giving way to one – the southern invader, Christ. Beowulf is a man caught between sides in this great shift, his simple code transforming and falling apart before his eyes.

”Beowulf & Grendel” strips away the mask of the hero-myth, leaving a raw and tangled tale.

Visit the film’s official site.
