DVD REVIEW: Byzantium
9:54am Friday 20th September 2013 in Entertainments
SEXY vampire Clara (Gemma Arterton) arrives in a rundown seaside resort with her fanged daughter Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan).
They hit the jackpot when they encounter a lonely misfit (Daniel Mays), who lives in the decrepit Byzantium guesthouse, which would make a perfect base of operations for Clara's prostitution business.
So while the older bloodsucker recruits local girls from the streets, Eleanor catches the eye of young waiter Frank (Caleb Landry Jones), who is waging a protracted battle against leukaemia.
When Darvell (Sam Riley), a Machiavellian face from Clara's past, turns up at the guesthouse, battle lines are drawn.
Byzantium is an intelligent and moody thriller adapted by Moira Buffini from her own stage play, which largely avoids the campy conventions we have come to expect from the creatures of the night. Release date: September 23.
