Synopsis


Only Lovers Left Alive
Noted indie director Jim Jarmusch directs the vampire story Only Lovers Left Alive. Tom Hiddleston stars as Adam, a bloodsucker who makes a living as a reclusive musician in Detroit. He reunites with the love of his life, Eve (Tilda Swinton), a fellow vampire who leaves her home overseas to be with him in the downtrodden Motor City. They eventually get a visit from Eve's irresponsible sister (Mia Wasikowska), who irritates Adam and eventually causes trouble with the one human -- the vampires refer to the living as zombies -- with whom the depressed music hero gets along. Only Lovers Left Alive screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    The movie tells the story of the main two characters who happen to be vampires but act more like an emotional teenagers that take life too serious, hate everything about it, and everyone. There is not a plot, or much story to tell. To be honest is not a great movie, but it did entertain me. Wouldn't watch it again. I do have to admit that there may be some people that will love it. It is definitely the type of Film that you either hate or love.

    I like the director, as he's done some good cult classic like "Dead Man", and this one doesn't disappoint either. It's more of an art movie, than a vampire action movie, but that's why it's good. It's heavy on character development and interaction. the blu-ray looks really good, and it has a few supplements that make it a worthwhile purchase.

    Easily one of Jim Jarmusch's best films, "Only Lovers Left Alive" presents vampires as you've never seen them before. Mournful observers over the march of time, immortality seems a thing to be endured as they are forced to watch the inevitable decay of all that they love. Wonderfully crafted, deliberately paced, and deftly acted.

    the movie's cast is what pulled me in, to be honest, especially after the sudden death of one of its stars :( its a really beautifully done art house twist on a romantic vampire rock & roll love story. its def worth seeing. ive already rewatched it a few times.

    A beautiful character-driven vampire movie set in the industrial ruins of Detroit and in postcolonial Morocco. It moves slowly, and I don't always like slow films, but I was intrigued by the characters and never found myself bored.

    This was a great watch and addition to my collection of Jim Jarmush films. Not your typical eat everyone alive movie. Kinda takes the approach of really what vampires might actually live like. Thanks.

    This was a great movie. Tilda Swenson & Tom Hiddleston make great vampires. I love the Lebanese singer in the scene in Morocco, watch her video in special features.
