In director Neil Jordan's vampire thriller a mother and daughter
struggle to hide their bloody secret from their adopted community.
Having survived for over 200 years, itinerant single mother Clara (Gemma
Arterton) and her daughter Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) are offered shelter
at the down-at-heel Byzantium guest house when they arrive at a rundown
seaside resort. Whilst her cold-hearted mother plies her trade as a
prostitute to keep their heads above water and indulges her bloodletting
at any opportunity, Eleanor wrestles with keeping her secret from her
latest love, Frank (Caleb Landry Jones). But when the truth finally
spreads its way through the local population, the arrival of two
strangers belonging to an all-male vampire sect known as 'The
Brotherhood' heralds a reckoning neither woman is prepared for.
