Jim Jarmusch’s ‘Only Lover’s Left Alive’ Heads to Cannes In Competition

Back in January, we gave you a first look a Jim Jarmusch’s upcoming vampire flick, Only Lovers Left Alive. Starring andro-goddess Tilda Swinton and swoon-worthy Tom Hiddelston, the romantically blood-sucking film will be his first directorial effort in four years, and we’ve been waiting for what seems like an eternity for more news on the project. And now, it looks like the feature will be added to the Cannes Film Festival’s Competition line-up alongside some of the most anticipated films of the year, from Nicolas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives and the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis to Asghar Farhadi’s The Immigrant and Alexander Payne’s Nebraska—to name a few. And we’re so excited.

The undead drama tells the story of Adam, a deeply depressed underground musician who reunites with his eternal and enigmatic love, Eve. Having already endured serveral centuries together, their love story is thwarted by the presence of Eve’s crazy younger sister, Ava. Swinton, Tom Hiddelston, and Mia Wasikowska take on the leading roles with John Hurt and Anton Yelchin filling out the supporting cast.

Check back here for more on Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.
