Jim Jarmusch Film Going To Cannes

The Cannes film festival found a last-minute berth for the undead as Jim Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive” was announced as a late entry in this year’s competition. Described by its director as “a crypto-vampire love story,” the film joins 19 other titles in the race for the festival’s crowning Palme d’Or award. “Only Lovers Left Alive” stars the British actors Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as an underground musician and his enigmatic lover of several centuries, while the supporting cast includes John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright, and Mia Wasikowska. “The film is about love in the end,” Hiddleston said recently. “And time, and our creative power.” In other words: it’s about everything.
