Shown to complement the Patron's Legacy Project, Only Lovers Left Alive features performances from both Sir John Hurt and Tilda Swinton.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister.

A film to beguile, Only Lovers brings together the very best elements of cinema-sparkling script, exceptional performances, stunning visuals, oh-so-perfect soundtrack-under the skilled eye of Jarmusch, a filmmaker with unique vision
You don't so much watch this movie as slink into it, joining an unlikely pair of lovers and enjoying their slouchy elegance.

Neither a romance, nor a horror, although it has glowing moments of both, it's a rich, witty mood piece you just have to sink into.
