How I Live Now

Saoirse Ronan in 'How I Live Now'.

Set in the near-future UK, Saoirse Ronan ("Atonement") plays Daisy, an American teenager sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside.  Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay, "Defiance").  But on the fringes of their idyllic summer days are tense news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe.  As the UK falls into a violent, chaotic military state, Daisy finds herself hiding and fighting to survive. Directed by Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland").
