She may look sweet and innocent, but Saoirse Ronan leaves no question about what she actually is in our first look at a scene from Neil Jordan’s “Byzantium.” The film premieres this Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival, and also stars Gemma Arterton as Clara, Ronan’s charcter Eleanor’s mother/vampire sire, and Sam Riley as Darvell and Caleb Landry Jones as Frank, the human boys they cross paths with.
In this clip, Jones’ Frank has clearly injured his hand pretty badly and Eleanor helps him home to his parents. Eleanor is visibly tempted by Frank’s spilled blood that still lies around her on the floor, and as the family drive away to the hospital, she does something that really grossed me out. But hey, I’m a lightweight when it comes to this stuff. Check it out below for yourself.
