Neil Jordan, the man who brought us "Interview with the Vampire," is now back with another vampire film, called "Byzantium." It's set to appear at this month's Toronto Film Festival, and to promote it, the studio has unveiled the first clip. Check it out below.
Plot: On the run for murder, two young "sisters" arrive penniless at an English seaside town. Clara (Gemma Arterton) is a fiercely modern woman who has her eyes on the future and no time for the past. Teenager Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) is shy and innocent. Yet, they both hide the same secrets: They are really mother and daughter, and they are both... vampires!
Eleanor is exhausted by 200 years on the run and desperate to settle down. But little does she know that her mother has been protecting her all of the years from their own kind, "The Brotherhood." To escape them, they must either blend in or continue running away. But just as they think they may have escaped, their past rapidly catches up with them.

@ Venom1970 & avirex: lol seriously? Ronan is one of the best in her age group. You're definitely not "weak" if you garner an Oscar nom at age 13 and a BAFTA (England's version of Oscar) at age 16. I wonder movies you've watched her in besides The Lovely Bones (in which she was putting an American accent on, so maybe that why her voice is bit annoying ... it isn't her natural accent) and Hanna (she garnered rave reviews). Ignorance.
