“ Irresistible. Immoral. Immortal.”
Easily one of my own personal most anticipated films of the year is Neil Jordan’s vamp drama Byzantium, which stars Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, Caleb Landry Jones, Danny Mays, Bradley James and Sam Riley.
Being sold at the coming Cannes market, “On the run for murder, two young “sisters” arrive penniless at an English seaside town. Clara is a fiercely modern woman who has her eyes on the future and no time for the past. Teenager Eleanor is shy and innocent. Yet they both hide the same secrets: they are really mother and daughter, and they are both… vampires!
Eleanor is exhausted by 200 years on the run and desperate to settle down. But little does she know that her mother has been protecting her all of the years from their own kind, “The Brotherhood”. To escape them, they must either blend in or continue running away. But just as they think they may have escaped, their past rapidly catches up with them.”
