Stephen Woolley: A Life In Film

Stephen Woolley

Byzantium (2012)

There are enough curios in Woolley’s back catalogue to really give the impression that the man loves a bit of folklore. If The Company Of Wolves was his love letter to Red Riding Hood, and Interview With The Vampire was his slice of gothic romance, Byzantium seems to be him bringing folk tales bang up to date as Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan play two vampires holed up in a fading seaside town, only to ignite the ire of some ill-informed locals.



Written by Moira Buffini based on her play and another film borne out of Woolley’s long-time partnership with Neil Jordan, Byzantium should be considered essential viewing for anyone brought up under the illusion that Twilight is how to make a modern vampire movie.
