Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) (C)
Release Date: August 19, 2014.
"Jim Jarmusch's vampire love story is exquisite, wry, romantic and a pinnacle of cool."
The tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton). Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.
Their love story has endured several centuries, but their debauched idyll is threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree little sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska), who hasn't yet learned to tame her wilder instincts.
Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science and the mysteries of everlasting love. -- (C) Sony Pictures Classics, 2013, Germany/UK/France/Greece.
