Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton are trying out being undead in Only Lovers Left Alive, which attracted rather mixed notices on its Toronto Film Festival debut. However the trailer suggests it could be rather intriguing.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister.’
It should be out next year.

It was well received at Cannes and the reviews I read from TIFF were generally favourable. I saw it at the London Film Festival and loved both the atmosphere and the humour. Couple this with the music and it’s a film you just want to sit back and luxuriate in.
