After hitting Cannes and Toronto, with New York and London in its sights, Jim Jarmusch‘s vampire film “Only Lovers Left Alive” continues to hit the festival circuit hard, and another stop planned on its worldwide journey, is at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival. And coming along with it are a batch of new photos from the movie.
Starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin, the film follows Adam and Eve, lovers and vampires who have been kicking around the planet for hundreds of years. Adam is disillusioned in humanity’s cruelty and cultural ignorance, all while he works away at his own music, while Eve has a bit more hope left, and tries to raise him out of his existential funk. Hilarious, witty and gorgeously photographed, this has all of Jarmusch’s trademark interests — film, literature and of course, music — packaged into something uniquely new and satisfying. (Check out our review Cannes).
