Why: Underrated with a growing catalog of superior works, Neil Jordan returns to the big screen with the tale of two vampires who try to keep their true natures a secret during an extended stay in an English seaside town. Title aside, the commercial nature of the film, Jordan's always impressive visual style and the hipster friendly cast make this a potential bounty for the right distributor. And moreover, who can resist Ronan and Arterton as bloodsuckers? Even if it's a mess, with Jordan behind the camera it's going to be gorgeous.
