Only Lovers Left Alive 15 rating

Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton star as ageless, blood-drinking lovers in Jim Jarmusch’s clever, funny and sexy vampire tale.

Romance 2014 123 mins

Director: Jim Jarmusch


A vampire movie unlike any other, with Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton) as timeless lovers whose centuries’-old romance is rekindled when Eve relocates to Detroit - where the good blood is - only for her younger sister (Mia Wasikowska) to turn up and destroy the peace.

Jarmusch evokes an ethereal, narcotic atmosphere for his smart, sexy and singular take on the vampire mythos, augmented with a superb soundtrack by the director’s own post-rock collective, SQÜRL. A droll meditation on humanity’s achievements over the centuries – and a peculiar paean to the power of love, Only Lovers Left Alive is as profoundly personal, and as effortlessly imaginative, as anything Jarmusch has made.
