Only Lovers Left Alive
July 7, 2014
Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston star in this unconventional vampire romance from director Jim Jarmusch. 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?
"Legendary hipster filmmaker Jim Jarmusch's wryly funny exercise in genre bending hits so many grace notes it ends up being his most satisfying film in years." - Lou Lumenick, New York Post
