MPI Home Video and IFC Films have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of director Neil Jordan's (Mona Lisa, The Crying Game) latest film Byzantium (2012), on October 29, 2013.

A run-down coastal resort becomes the epicenter of unimaginable evil when two mysterious women suddenly appear there seeking refuge. Alluring Clara (Gemma Arterton, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and schoolgirl Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan, Hanna) meet local loner Noel (Daniel Mays, Atonement) and take up residence in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Before long Eleanor befriends another local, Frank (Caleb Landry Jones, Antiviral) and reveals to him the lethal secret the two women share: they were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their shared past threatens to catch up to them with deadly consequences. A uniquely fresh take on the vampire myth, Neil Jordan's (The Brave One) Byzantium is a stylish and affecting look at the loneliness and isolation that come with the price of immortality.
