Only Lovers Left Alive Trailer

Starring Tilda Swinton – John Hurt – Tom Hiddleston – Mia Wasikowska

A depressed musician reunites with his lover, though their romance – which has already endured several centuries – is disrupted by the arrival of uncontrollable younger sister. Vampires are the main characters. A love affair and a mysterious way of looking at the world of the night.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them? (c) Sony Classics

Critics Consensus: Worth watching for Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton’s performances alone, Only Lovers Left Alive finds writer-director Jim Jarmusch adding a typically offbeat entry to the vampire genre. I believe this statement to be accurate and the film amazingly hypnotizing.
