UPDATE - We will have some special guests on the night, so book now, tickets going fast.
The story centres on two mysterious women, Eleanor (Saorise Ronan – THE HOST, HANNA) and Clara (Gemma Arterton – PRINCE OF PERSIA, QUANTUM OF SOLACE) who seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel (Johnny Lee Miller), who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium.
Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank (Caleb Landry-Jones – ANTI-VIRAL) 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.
We have seen a lot of takes on the classic vampire tale and few of them dare to play with myth and method, and do so successfully. However, Neil Jordan is no stranger to the breed, and once again employs a fresh approach that delivers a unique take on bloodlust.
The script by Moira Buffini (based on her play of the same name) keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout.
