'Great performances, a unique Jarmusch visual style and could become cult viewing'.
A centuries old love story of two vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston), a reclusive musician and Eve (Tilda Swinton), taking up residence in Adam’s disordered suburban house. Will their nocturnal utopia survive the arrival of Eve’s uncontrollable younger sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska) ?
It's a Jim Jarmusch cool unique meditative vampire take on the familiar gothic mythology. Tom Hiddleston is a great gothy lead well supported by a cool and effortless performance from Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska irritates and John Hurt as Christopher Marlowe is the absolute icing on the cake - it's a cool movie peppered with musical and literary references all presented with Jarmusch’s typically deadpan style of humour and it's suggested that 'Only Lovers Left Alive' is a defining example of the existential vampire film.
