About the Movie
The tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Their love story has endured several centuries 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 wilder instincts. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, and the mysteries of everlasting love.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: In "Only Lovers Left Alive," writer-director Jim Jarmusch turns one of his silliest notions into one of the more affecting movies of his career.
Fresh: Languorous, droll and ultimately affecting.
Fresh: Jim Jarmusch stocks his latest low-key indie with more than his usual characters in low-velocity drift.
Fresh: it's also one of [Jarmusch's] most visually expressive films, playing out amid ravishing nocturnal imagery that fits perfectly with the dark romantic tone.
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!
I was taken with this movie from the very beginning. This is everything you could ask for in a film: dark, witty, beautiful, thoughtful, sad…I could go on. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
One of the Best of Recent Years
Fantastic, brilliant, beautiful, touching, deep.
sad fetishistic hollow midlife crisis movie
Only Lovers Left Alive is probably the best movie ever made about the hell that is being a hipster. It shows us that well honed hipsters who don’t die actually become even more insufferable than their young counterparts. It’s a movie that completely exposes Jarmusch’s sad and desperate vanity. And yet he doesn’t know it, so there’s no relief or release. It’s like watching someone shining a spotlight on their huge blind spot.
