Let The Right One In


(2008) dir Tomas Alfredson w/Kare Hedebrant, Lina Leandersson, Per Ragnar [115 min; 35mm]
Hands down one of the best vampire movies of the past 10 years LET THE RIGHT ONE IN is a haunting and poignant portrait of Oskar (Hedebrant), a lonely 12 year old boy, who befriends his new neighbor, a young girl (Leandersson). It doesn’t deter Oskar too much to discover his new friend is a vampire, in fact it intrigues him, and the two form a deep and lasting bond. A clear antidote to the baroque romanticism of the Twilight saga, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN features stunning performances from its two young leads and austerely beautiful direction from Tomas Alfredson (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).
