Watched Byzantium the other day, having not read or seen anything about it bar the title, I had no expectations for this Brit/Irish collaboration, and I must say that I really enjoyed it. Mind you, I’m a sucker for the vampire genre (I made a funny LOL), so it only added to my joy. Starring Gemma Arterton and Saoirise Ronan (love her name btw), they play a mother and daughter vampire duo who as it seems are forever on the run. From what?! You’ll just have to watch it, if you have the chance. Other notable acting talent that might seduce your filmdom include Jonny Lee Miller and Sam Riley.
It’s a lengthy film, and as the title suggests it’s a little byzantine, but if you’re a avid movie goer, you’ll have no problem following. It was an interesting take on traditional vampire lore from my point of view. 3/5.
