Maria Lewis says:
“What is feminism? Simply the belief that women should be as free as men.” Moran said that and it remains true. Byzantium is a powerful story well told. It’s a creepy, beautiful horror film that transcends the ‘vampire flick’ tag. Ya, it depicts two vampires, but more importantly it depicts two women who are fighting to be as free as the men of their species. Now if that isn’t a great piece of feminist cinema with a relevant message, then I’ll get back in the fucking kitchen*.
Two female vampires wreak havoc on an unsuspecting English seaside community in this deliciously depraved supernatural drama from Oscar-winner Neil Jordan. Introverted Eleanor (Ronan) and the outgoing Clara (Arterton) both carry secrets from deep in their shared past—all 200 years of it. Shacked up in the seedy Byzantium Hotel, they scheme to keep their secret from unsuspecting new marks in Jordan’s seductive, stylish new take on the vampire genre.
How do you win?
Comment: Byzantium is the best feminist film you will see this year.
