Clips & Images – Byzantium (Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan)

ByzantiumSynopsis: Eleanor (Ronan) and Clara (Arterton), two mysterious and penniless young women, flee the scene of a violent crime and arrive in a run-down coastal resort. They try to find money and refuge along the tawdry seafront and in the dilapidated hotels.  Clara, ever-practical, sells her body. She soon meets shy and lonely Noel, who provides a roof over their heads in his seedy guesthouse, Byzantium.  Clara, always looking towards the future, turns it into a ‘pop-up’ brothel.

Meanwhile Eleanor meets Frank, who unwittingly prompts her to tell the truth about her life. She tells him that Clara is her mother; yet Clara is only a few years older. She says that she was born in 1804; yet she is just sixteen. She confesses that she must drink human blood to stay alive – and so must her mother. In the small, quiet town, people start to die.
