For lovers of vampire-movies, Byzantium (2013) is a treat. Neil Jordan has done a marvelous job as a director. This is the third vampire-movie Jordan has directed. His two earlier vampire-movies are ‘High Spirits (1988)’ and the oscar nominated ‘Interview with the Vampire (1994)’.
Neil Jordan has created a practical emotional vampire drama of a mother-daughter vampire duo of Clara Webb (Gemma Arterton) and Eleanor Webb (Saoirse Ronan). Byzantium has kept the high graded standard of Interview with the Vampire that was based on child-vampire emotional drama that star-casted Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst as child-artist of vampire-child Claudia.
Byzantium was showcased at Toronto Film Festival on September 9, 2012. In UK it was released on May 31, 2013. Again, the movie released worldwide including USA on June 28, 2013. The movie is action-packed emotional drama, that should be must watched if you like fantasy genre of movies.
