Sony Pictures Classics is offering a new look at the R-rated sexy vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive with a new poster, trailer, and photos featuring the film’s stars Tilda Swinton as Eve and Tom Hiddleston as Adam, “devastatingly cool vampires,” as well as the launch of a new website. Directed by Jim Jarmusch, Only Lovers Left Alive premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and is currently sitting at an 84% positive rating on RottenTomatoes. The Irish Times’ critic suggests, “See it and try to think ‘vampire’ in the future without conjuring Tom and Tilda,” while the Daily Telegraph says, “The best reason to see this film is Swinton and Hiddleston’s achingly sexy double-act as two old, cold souls in still-hot bodies, steadfastly keeping the spark alive even as the world around them slowly snuffs itself out.” The rest of us have to wait to find out what the fuss is all about until April 11th when it arrives in limited release.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover.
Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
