BYZANTIUM is director Neil Jordan's (Interview with the Vampire, The Crying Game) sexy and stylish fantasy thriller about mother and daughter vampires dealing with the pitfalls of eternal life. Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara (Gemma Arterton) meets lonely Noel (Daniel Mays), who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan, Hanna, Atonement) befriends Frank (Caleb Landry Jones) and tells him their lethal secret: They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence. Also starring Sam Riley and Jonny Lee Miller. Byzantium is written by Moira Buffini, who penned ‘A Vampire Story’ for the National Theatre Connections Festival in 2008. Neil Jordan's longtime producer Stephen Woolley saw a production of this play, and began conversations to adapt the play for the screen and so Byzantium came to fruition. The film’s running time is 118 minutes; it is rated R.
