(2012) dir Neil Jordan w/Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, Caleb Landry Jones, Daniel Mays [118 min]
Two nomadic, centuries-old female vampires settle in a rundown British seaside hotel, Byzantium. Their sensibilities are oppositional: Clara (Arterton) is a bold, sexy, and indulgent supernatural being while Eleanor (Ronan) is an eternal teenager with a yen to escape through storytelling.
"Gorgeous, mesmerizing, poetic; the lyricism actually heightened by harsh jets of gore." David Edelstein, New York Magazine
