Already the winner of several awards at both national and international film festivals, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014) is a clever, highly original twist on the vampire myth, the second such movie made in the last two years. In 2013, Jim Jarmusch, an accomplished filmmaker, gave us Only Lovers Left Alive with Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as Eve and Adam, a centuries-old bloodsucking couple whose close friend Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), still alive and drinking life’s elixir, was the actual author of Shakespeare’s works.

HEARING VOICES Wednesday, June 17
