BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA is director Francis Ford Coppola's epic retelling of a story that has inspired many films, but never one so true to Stoker's 1897 novel and its historical background. The screenplay opens in 1462, when the Roumanian prince Vlad Dracula (Gary Oldman) saves his country from the Turks but loses his great love, and then swears an unholy oath to avenge her. 4 centuries later, a young Englishman, Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) visits the Transylvanian castle of an eccentric old count, and the classic tale unfolds.
The book contains the complete shooting script, excerpts from the original novel, and more than 160 photos, 100 in color of the production. This is the official companion book to the landmark film.
