In modern-day San Francisco, an enigmatic figure begins telling his story to an eager young journalist. His story begins in the 18th Century, where a suicidal man is convinced by a mysterious stranger to choose immortality over death and transform from human into vampire – he accepts, but eternal life proves to be as much of a curse as a gift…
Starring: Brad Pitt | Tom Cruise | Kirsten Dunst | Stephen Rea | Antonio Banderas | Christian Slater
Director: Neil Jordan
Screenplay: Anne Rice
Producer: David Geffen | Stephen Woolley
THEY SAY: “Both Rice and Jordan take [the vampire legend], with its abundant possibilities for looking ridiculous, and play it as tragedy […] a skillful exercise in macabre imagination.” – Roger Ebert, 1994
WE SAY: Producer David Geffen legendarily poured over $70 million into the budget of this film, allowing for Rice’s vision to be truly explored – and it shows. It’s a spectacle of set and costume design, but the cast’s performances – especially a 12-year-old Kirsten Dunst performing (literally) beyond her years…! – are what make this pitch dark fable a cult classic.
