From Neil Jordan, director of Interview with the Vampire and The Company of Wolves comes a haunting, visually sublime and unique take on ancient undead mythology. Clara (Gemma Arterton) is a 200-year-old vampire who works in sleazy strip clubs and prostitutes herself to support her vampire daughter, Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan). But this deadly duo are no ordinary vampires; Clara drains the scum of the earth and Eleanor acts as an angel of death preying on the suffering elderly. When the two daughters of darkness open up a bordello in a seedy seaside guesthouse, shocking secrets going back through tortured centuries must be suppressed. UK premiere.
MTV published a new interview with Saoirse talking about “Byzantium“. Thanks to asimo for the heads up!
If you value your soul—or your jugular—you best steer clear of Saoirse Ronan. The Irish actress is getting up close and very personal with the human race in a pair of upcoming film roles. In “The Host,” she plays alien Wanderer, who implants herself inside an unwitting woman, taking over control. In “Byzantium,” she plays vampire Eleanor, who—no surprise—enjoys slurping up pints of O-neg.
It’s the latter that MTV News’ Josh Horowitz quizzed Saoirse about while at the Toronto International Film Festival, and while she admitted she isn’t necessarily an avid consumer of vampire mythology, she can relate to the bloodsuckers’ base instincts.
Here are the first reviews on Byzantium.
