Adam (Tom Hiddleston) is an underground musician living in self-imposed exile in desolate Detroit, making music that he doesn’t want anyone to hear while surrounding himself with vintage guitars, recording equipment and vinyl records. Depressed at the state of the world and the limits of the human imagination, he is a cause for concern for his estranged lover Eve (Tilda Swinton), who travels from Tangiers to be by his side. It emerges that their love affair has endured for centuries, that they have witnessed societies rise and fall, and that they fear for the modern world. When Eve’s wild, mischievous sister Eva (Mia Wasikowska) makes an unwelcome appearance, the couple become ever more anxious.

Jim Jarmusch’s keenly awaited new film is a literate, haunting and achingly romantic vampire movie that plays with conventions while embracing the essential existential heart of the genre. (Notes by Michael Hayden.)
