First Look At Only Lovers Left Alive
Tilda Swinton & Tom Hiddleston get close

31 January 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Indiewire

Blimey… We knew Loki took it hard when his big plan to conquer the Earth was soundly trounced by those meddling Avengers, but we didn’t think it would A) see him dressing like The Cure’s Robert Smith and B) finding solace in the arms of Tilda Swinton. What’s that? He didn’t? It’s actually the first image from Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, and comes courtesy of Indiewire? That’s okay then. Panic over, Hiddlestoners.

Yes, the “crypto-vampire” love story finds Mr Hiddleston as Adam, a mysterious underground musician (who has lived for centuries) sinking deep into depression at the endless cruelty and suffering present in humanity.

Looking to jolt himself out of the funk, he reunites with long-term lover Eve (Swinton), but his hopes for romantic calm are spoiled by her wild younger sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Tch. Kids today…

With John Hurt and Anton Yelchin also in the cast, Only Lovers Left Alive is currently seeking distribution and will probably pop up in Cannes this year, especially since Jarmusch rustled up financing for the film at the 2011 festival.
