In this stylish, moody feature, writer/director Jim Jarmusch (Mystery Train, Dead Man, Paterson) artfully explores the centuries-long romance between musician Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and his Tangier-based lover Eve (Tilda Swinton), both vampires.

While their latest reunion in Detroit initially alleviates Adam’s depressive ruminations, the arrival of Eve’s sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska) is an unwelcome disruption. 

Gritty, sultry and entirely reliant on a thirst for blood, this critically acclaimed film is truly a love story for the ages.  

‘The wry comedy is filigree work around this romantic tale of two souls who share the purest, deepest, sexiest, most affectionate love of any twosome in modern movies’ – TIME
