Sexy, thrilling, and mysterious, director Neil Jordan’s (Interview with the Vampire) Byzantium, on DVD and Blu-ray October 29, deftly draws upon 19th century vampire mythology to create a wholly contemporary Gothic tale.
“Clara (Gemma Arterton, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) and her daughter, Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan, Hanna), have been sating their need for blood for 200 years. Sensitive Eleanor relies on the elderly to survive, but Clara is far less compassionate, working as a prostitute and bringing a violent end to those who would take advantage of women. When the trail of bloodless corpses left in their wake forces them to flee to a coastal town, Clara sees an opportunity to set up a brothel in an old resort and provide for her daughter. But Eleanor, unwilling to continue living on the run, yearns to tell her story of life in the past, not anticipating the grave consequences doing so may have.”
