Starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska
Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton) are two sensitive and sophisticated vampires who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with a passion for music, literature, and science, who have evolved to a point where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Their love story has endured for hundreds of years, but their debauched idyll is threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska) who hasn’t yet learned to tame her more base instincts. Driven by sensuous photography, trancelike music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is an arrestingly unique meditation on art, culture, and the mysteries of everlasting love.
