Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2013: # 39. Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive

Only Lovers Left Alive

Director/Writer: Jim Jarmusch
Producer(s): Reinhard Brundig, Jeremy Thomas
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin

Jarmusch redefined the samurai film with Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, so now the question is, can he do the same with the vampire film? The Limits of Control was a forgettable oddity, this on paper remains a mystery and unfortunately the genre has been overcooked….but an impenetrable, commanding performance from Tilda Swinton is almost a given.

Gist: A story centered on two vampires who have been in love for centuries. The story follows Adam (Tom Hiddleston), an underground musician reunites with his centuries-old lover (Tilda Swinton) after he becomes depressed and tired with the direction human society has taken. Their love is interrupted and tested by her wild and uncontrollable little sister (Mia Wasikowska).

Release Date: Since this has been in post for such a long time, I’m sure they’ll be aiming for Cannes instead of Venice.
