Tilda Swinton was born into a Scottish Lowlands nobility and might easily have settled into a luxurious lifestyle as a lady of leisure in high society. Instead, she went into the infamously volatile field of acting, building a remarkable resume by avoiding traditional leading lady roles in favor of offbeat character roles. Whether it be in drama, comedy, big-budget action, documentary, or even small budget art films, Swinton has solidified herself as a truly distinguished film artist over the course of three decades and has proven to be one of the most compelling actors in contemporary cinema.

Announcing O Cinema’s new and exciting monthly series, SEASONED ACTORS that celebrates the work of an actor that has contributed to indie and pop cinematic culture in our lifetimes.

Acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a stylish, hip and droll take on the well-worn bloodsucker genre – a nocturnal tale of two vampires in love, and their quest for amusement and an untainted blood supply. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play Adam and Eve, vampires who have been lovers for centuries. He’s a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of Detroit; she’s a lover of knowledge residing in Tangier—but they’re deeply connected soul mates. Adam’s music is eagerly received by the zombies (i.e. humans) such as rock promoter Ian (Anton Yelchin), whose adulation threatens his need for solitude. Sensing Adam’s growing angst and despair, Eve makes a transatlantic journey to see him, despite the difficulties of travelling by day. However, their joyful reunion is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Eve’s carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska), who brings trouble in her wake and threatens their debauched idyll. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them? Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music by Jarmusch’s band Squrl, and darkly sly humor, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is a hypnotic meditation on art, science, memory and the mysteries of everlasting love.

“Swinton and Hiddleston make their love story one for the ages.”
– LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Has undoubted panache, and wit to spare, especially when Swinton is in the frame.”
– NEW YORKER

“Swinton, in a platinum-blond wig, gives the ultimate Tilda Swinton performance as a poetically famished vampiress.”
– CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

“The best reason to see this film is Swinton and Hiddleston’s achingly sexy double-act as two old, cold souls in still-hot bodies, steadfastly keeping the spark alive even as the world around them slowly snuffs itself out”
– DAILY WIRE
