Once in a while comes along a movie in which the setting is so captivating it becomes a character in its own right. For me, this list includes movies such as Howard’s End, The Holiday, You’ve Got Mail, Something’s Gotta Give , Baby Boom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and ... here’s the odd one that stands out from the list … Only Lovers Left Alive, cleverly written and stylishly directed by Jim Jarmusch. Among a company of beautiful movie houses and settings, the 135-year-old mansion in Only Lovers Left Alive reigns in a league of its own. Clearly once a great beauty, the house Jarmusch features in the movie is more like an abandoned ruin than the elegant Gilded Age property it used to be. The mansion stars as the cluttered abode of Adam, a centuries-old, moody rock-star vampire who's finding himself bored and annoyed by the human race (whom he calls "zombies"). Located in the crumbling yet distinctive Brush Park neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan, Adam’s house in real life is a 6,200-square-foot Queen Anne house with the address of 82 Alfred Street, formerly known as the Whitney Mansion.
