Only Lovers Left Alive
Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes and praised as Jim Jarmusch's best work since Dead Man, Only Lovers Left Alive is a bitingly cool tale from our most idiosyncratic auteur. Tom Hiddleston stars opposite Tilda Swinton as a reclusive vampire at odds with the modern world. After a rich history of influencing musicians and scientists across centuries, he now holes himself up outside of Detroit, recording and inventing while living off blood-bank donations. When his sulky depression gets to the point of suicide, his wife Eve (Swinton) returns from living in Tangier to console him. Shortly after they’re joined by her little sister (Mia Wasikowska) who brings trouble to their newfound happiness in blood bohemia.
