Only Lovers Left Alive

Now Playing Synopsis: 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 Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, Jeffrey Wright Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
