“Exquisite, wry, romantic and a pinnacle of cool.”

– Nicole Sia, SPIN Magazine


2013 Cannes Palme d'Or Nominee & Official Selection at 2014 Sundance Film Festival



Jim Jarmusch’s Vampire Love Story Starring Tom Hiddleston & Tilda Swinton 
With Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin & John Hurt


On Blu-ray™, DVD & Digital HD Aug. 19


Featuring Deleted & Extended Scenes, Yasmine Hamdan’s Performance of “Hal,” & 
The “Traveling at Night with Jim Jarmusch” Documentary 


CULVER CITY, Calif. (June 16, 2014) – Sony Pictures Classics’ visually poetic love story from Director Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers), ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, will debut on Blu-ray, DVD and DigitalHD Aug. 19 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film is the apotheosis of American independent film and underground music, full of Jarmusch’s laconic sense of humor. ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE stars Oscar winner® Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, 2008, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role) and Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), alongside co-stars Mia Wasikowska (Lawless), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness) and John Hurt (Harry Potter). Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, this critically well-received fan-favorite puts an original spin on a well-worn genre – these vampires are mature, highbrow and charmingly ultra-cool.  ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE was selected for official competition at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and enjoyed critical acclaim at various film festivals worldwide, including the Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, and New York Film Festival. It was also chosen as an official selection at this year's Sundance Film Festival.


Special features on the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release include never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes, as well as an extended version of Yasmine Hamdan performing "Hal."  Also included is the “Traveling at Night with Jim Jarmusch” documentary, taking fans behind the scenes for a portrait of the director at work on his latest film.



Only Lovers Left Alive is the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Hiddleston) and Eve (Swinton). Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Their love story has endured several centuries but their debauched idyll is threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree little sister Ava (Wasikowska) who hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts. Driven by sensual photography, trance-like music, and droll humor, Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, and the mysteries of everlasting love.


Blu-ray & DVD Bonus Features:

·  Traveling at Night with Jim Jarmusch -- A portrait of Director Jim Jarmusch at work on the set of his latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive

·  Deleted & Extended Scenes

·  Yasmine Hamdan "Hal" Music Video – An extended version of Yasmine Hamdan performing "Hal."

Only Lovers Left Alive has a runtime of approximately 123 minutes and is rated R for sexual content, language, drug use and brief violence.

Haven't seen it; I'm waiting for my copy to arrive. The creds are enough for me. And no, I've never been blessed by any Twilight fantasy.

I have it but I confess I enjoy Jim Jarmusch movies. I thought it was great but I'm sure mileage may vary. It is beautifully shot and of course the music is outstanding.
