Byzantium

Byzantium (2012, imdb)
Drama
Directed by Neil Jordan

This is a that dime a dozen certified decent™ vampire movie. A bit more mature, a bit different, a bit more literature-minded, a bit less horror and a lot less shit than what one has learned to expect and fear from vampire-fare. As it says on the poster Neil Jordan is indeed the director behind Interview with the Vampire (wasn’t it “a vampire”?) and Byzantium does indeed feature Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan in main roles. Ronan is especially lovely as an eternal teen with literary (and other) urges.
