In a crumbling Detroit apartment, one of the world’s last vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston), reunites with his ancient love, Eve (Tilda Swinton), in Jim Jarmusch’s latest, Only Lovers Left Alive. A moody blend of drama, romance and horror, the film serves as a meditation on art, love and mortality, all delivered with Jarmusch’s trademark deadpan wink.
ComingSoon.net/ShockTillYouDrop.com sat down with Swinton to discuss her third project with the idyosyncratic filmaker and her portrayal of a centuries-old character. She also expounds upon the thematic relevance of filming in Detroit and the relationship between artistry and vampirism. Check out the conversation in the video player below!
Also starring Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright, Only Lovers Left Alive hits theaters in a limited release this Friday, April 11.
