ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a romance drama vampire film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Coffee and Cigarettes), starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, and Anton Yelchin. It was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers, Adam (Hiddleston) is a reclusive, Bowielike rock star, whose only wish is to avoid his adoring fans and write and play his music, which these days tends towards the funereal. Eve (Swinton) is his lady belle, who leaves her closest friend, Christopher Marlowe (Hurt), to travel halfway around the world to be with her lover and live in a ramshackle mansion-cum-recording studio on the outskirts of Detroit. Their reverie is troubled, not just by the fans who close in on and keep vigil outside Adam's hideaway, but also by Eve's irascible sister (Wasikowska). Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
