Bram Stoker's Dracula is based on Bram Stoker's classic novel of the same name. A young lawyer (Jonathan Harker) is assigned to a gloomy village in the mists of Eastern Europe. He is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire Dracula, who travels to London, inspired by a photograph of Harker's betrothed, Mina Murray. In Britain, Dracula begins a reign of seduction and terror, draining the life from Mina's closest friend, Lucy Westenra. Lucy's friends gather together to try to drive Dracula away.
In Bram Stoker's Dracula Francis Ford Coppola returns to the original Dracula myth with an all-star cast including Anthony Hopkins (recently seen in the thriller Fracture), Wynona Ryder, Keanu Reeves, Cary Elwes (appearing in the new thriller The Alphabet Killer) and Gary Oldman, who delivers an astonishingly sinister and tragic performance as the blood-lusting title character.
