A road trip with a difference is the subject of the award winning film Transamerica. We have 10 DVDs to give away to TES readers this week, courtesy of Pathe Distribution (released on DVD on July 24 at pound;19.99).

Masquerading as a missionary, she bails him out and the two of them embark on a heartwarming and often hilarious journey across America.
