Easily one of my favorite horror films of the year, Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive isn’t for everyone. While Ryan Daley wasn’t the biggest of fans, I found my self obsessing over the film’s beautiful simplicity, extraordinary acting (Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston are out of this world), and real-life story structure. While it’s a bit “hipster,” it’s extremely powerful storytelling with strongly developed characters. Also featuring astounding sound design and score, this is a must-see in theaters…
The pic “tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.”
Sony Pictures has finally released an official U.S. trailer that’s pretty representational of what you’ll see in theaters April 11. Enjoy an O-negative ice pop while you watch the trailer!
John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin also star.
