Go See This



Coming of age, vampire story. It doesn't cheat or fall back on lazy genre conventions, and it's wistful and tender (while still being horrifyingly violent).

Probably the best and most subtle depiction of a vampire's supernatural abilities I've ever seen.

It's playing at the Angelika NYC (and other Landmark theaters). See it in the big screen if you can but I believe the DVD will be released March, 2009.
