  • Bright Lights: Only Lovers Left Alive

    10/30/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.

    Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit, despairs about human civilization's decline, and worries about future survival. Eve, who is perhaps 3000 years old to Adam's 500, takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side.

    As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish. Eve's close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare's plays—Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price.

    Adam and Eve's precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn't yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam.

    Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.
