Clara (Gemma Arterton, Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters) and Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan, Hanna) have been sating their needs for blood for 200 years. Sensitive Eleanor relies on the elderly to survive, but Clara is far less compassionate, working as a prostitute and bringing a violent end to those who would take advantage of her. When the trail of bloodless corpses left in their wake f-rces them to fell to a coastal town, Clara sees an opportunity to set up a brothel in an old resort and establish a more stable life. But Eleanor, unwilling to continue living on the run, yearns to tell her story of life in the past, not anticipating the grave consequences doing so may have. Sexy, thrilling and mysterious, director Neil Jordan's (Interview With The Vampire) Byzantium deftly draws upon 19th century vampire mythology to create a wholly contemporary Gothic tale.
