Byzantium: Directed by Neil Jordan. With Saoirse Ronan, Barry Cassin, Gemma Arterton, David Heap. Residents of a coastal town learn, with deathly consequences, the secret shared by the two mysterious women who have sought shelter at a local resort.
“I have just seen this film as part of the famous Bridport Film Festival called u0026quot;From page to screenu0026quot;. It features films that have been adapted from books and are very often accompanied, either before or after the screening, by a question and answer session with either the Director, Producer or Author etc. Bridport is in the county of Dorsetshire in the United Kingdom. This pre-release screening of Byzantium was enhanced by a very informative Qu0026amp;A with the Producer Stephen Woolley. If you are expecting fangs, crucifixes, coffins and garlic prepare to be surprised! These vampires are a new take on a familiar theme. Much of the film is shot on location in the seaside town of Hastings which gives it a fabulously grungy and stark atmosphere. I have to admit that I didnu0026#39;t really want to go and see u0026quot;anotheru0026quot; vampire film. Believe me when I say that this is not just u0026quot;anotheru0026quot; vampire film.”
