Cannes Update – Jarmusch to the Croisette!

If you didn’t come of age in the 1980s, Jim Jarmusch might not have left his mark on you yet. But he made the kinds of films that really did spark a movement here and elsewhere.

Only Lovers Left Alive unites Renaissance Woman Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston and is about “two vampires who have survived as lovers for centuries.”  Or, “Adam (Tom Hiddleston), an underground musician reunites with his lover for centuries (Tilda Swinton) after he becomes depressed and tired with the direction human society has taken. Their love is interrupted and tested by her wild and uncontrollable little sister (Mia Wasikowska).”

    Swinton and Hiddleston? If the script is any good, this has the potential to be AMAZING with those two actors.

    Swinton + Hiddleston x Jarmusch = intense watchability, even if they are playing vampires.

    I’m really excited for this. I find the pairing of Swinton and Hiddleston fascinating. That picture with the two of them, LOVE IT.
