IFC Finally Dates Vamp Tale ‘Byzantium’

Byzantium - 1

Irresistible. Immoral. Immortal.

Neil Jordan’s Byzantium, which was acquired by IFC Films out of the Toronto International Film Festival, will arrive on VOD and in limited theaters June 28.

Starring Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, Caleb Landry Jones, Danny Mays, Bradley James, Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller and Tom Hollander, the pic is about a pair of women who claim to be vampire siblings.

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!
