(MOVIE) Gemma Artenton and Saoirse, Mother and Daughter duo in ‘Byzantium’

 Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan star in Interview With the Vampire director Neil Jordan’s lavish yet decadent tale of a blood-sucking mother/daughter duo whose dark 200-year history threatens to catch up with them at  a  run-down  hotel  on  the  English  coast.  Their  story  begins  during  the

Napoleonic  Wars,  when  young  Eleanor  (Ronan)  is  abandoned  as  Clara (Arterton)  falls  into  a  passionate  love  affair.  Two  centuries  later,  demure Eleanor and extroverted Clara are on the run when they seek sanctuary in a  dilapidated  coastal  resort. There, Clara  sets  her  sights  on  a  lonely  soul named Noel  (Daniel Mays), who has just inherited the Byzantium hotel, a once-thriving  inn that  has fallen  into  a  sad  state  of  disrepair. Before  long, the elder vampire has transformed the Byzantium into a makeshift brothel where  she  and  her  young  companion  can  quench  their  thirst  for  human blood  while  maintaining  a  low  profile.  Meanwhile,  Eleanor  falls  for  Frank(Caleb Landry Jones), a charming young waiter who unwittingly draws outthe natural storyteller in her. Amidst a string of mysterious disappearancesin the sleepy coastal town, Frank realizes that Eleanor’s extraordinary tales are  much  more  than  simple  fantasy.  As  Clara  and  Eleanor’s  sanguinary fast slowly comes into focus, it’s only a matter of time before the pair will be forced to either flee once again or face their fates with a sense of dark courage.

“Byzantium” is released and distributed by Captive Cinema.
