Confession time – I love vampires.
Well not literally, BUT vampire mythology, literature and film.
Sorry though Twi-hards, as much as I love sparkles, I don’t like Twilight. I even read the series. And those are many long hours of my life I’ll never get back. Thanks Stephenie Meyer.
Anyway! Byzantium however is a totally different beast than sparkle-town.
Directed by Neil Jordan (also the director of 1994’s film adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interveiw With a Vampire), Byzantium tells the story of a vampire mother – Clara (played by Gemma Arterton) and daughter Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan).
