"only lovers left alive"

Only Lovers Left Alive – Official Trailer

This Palme d’Or (2013 Cannes Film Festival) nominated indie film stars Tom Hiddleston (who most of you will know as Loki from Thor), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Stoker), the amazing Tilda Swinton, and everyone’s favourite, John Hurt.

Only Lovers Left Alive takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who 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.

Little to do with vampires and more to do with love and people, it’s a very beautiful, fun, sombre-but-sweet movie with an amazing soundtrack.
