This full-blooded epic is Jordan at his most gloriously ambitious

"Byzantium has a few moves that might surprise you. They have nothing to do with blood, but everything to do with the heart."

Two female vampires wreak havoc on an unsuspecting English seaside community in this deliciously depraved supernatural drama from Oscar-winner Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire). Introverted Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) and the outgoing Clara (Gemma Arterton) both carry secrets from deep in their shared past—all 200 years of it. Shacked up in the seedy Byzantium Hotel, they scheme to keep their secret from unsuspecting new marks in Jordan’s seductive, stylish new take on the vampire genre.
