by Francis Ford Coppola. 1992. 128 min.
In Bram Stoker's Dracula, Coppola returns to the original source of the Dracula myth, and creates a modern masterpiece from that gothic romance. Gary Oldman's metamorphosis as Count Dracula, who grows from old to young, from man to beast, is nothing short of amazing. Winona Ryder brings equal intensity to the role of a young woman who becomes the object of the vampire’s devastating desire. Keanu Reeves shines as a laconic barrister who travels to Transylvania to do business with the Count but instead finds himself imprisoned in Dracula’s gloomy castle. Anthony Hopkins co-stars as the famed doctor who dares to believe in Dracula, and then dares to confront him. Opulent, dazzling, and utterly irresistible, this is Dracula as you've never seen him before. And once you've seen Bram Stoker's Dracula, you'll never forget it.
