Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 4th at 7p for Only Lovers Left Alive at the Coolidge Corner Theatre . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston star in director Jim Jarmusch’s (Broken Flowers, Ghost Dog) wry, tender take on the vampire genre.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician (Hiddleston), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Swinton).
Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister (Mia Wasikowska). Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
