Jim Jarmusch’s crypto-vampire love story Only Lovers Left Alive, which stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin, was recently added to the competition lineup for the Cannes Film Festival. It’s Jarmusch’s first entry since Broken Flowers in 2005.
“Lovers” stars Hiddleston as Adam, “an underground musician who’s deeply depressed by the direction of human activities. He reunites with his centuries-long lover, Eve (Swinton), though their idyll is soon interrupted by Eve’s wild and uncontrollable younger sister Ava (Wasikowska).”
Two clips have been shared via Indiewire, as the film premieres this coming Saturday.
No word on a US release as of yet.
