    How I Live Now
    A New York teen visiting relatives in the English countryside must fight for survival after the entire world is plunged into war in this drama directed by Kevin Macdonald, and based on the apocalyptic novel by Meg Rosoff. Fifteen-year-old Daisy (Saoirse Ronan) has recently arrived in the United Kingdom to spend the summer with her cousins when her heart flutters at the sight of her handsome cousin Eddie (George MacKay). Just as the pair have begin to form an intense connection, however, the bombs begin to rain down on London, and an occupying military force seizes power. Now, with Eddie nowhere to be found, Daisy must protect his younger siblings Isaac (Tom Holland) and Piper (Harley Bird) while attempting to navigate a frightening new world where survival is a day-to-day struggle. Later, when the trio is separated, the uncertainty of not knowing Eddie's fate begins to take a heavy toll on the psyche of the frightened, misplaced Daisy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Gritty coming of age action/drama

      This tough and taut coming of age tale, based on the novel of the same name, strikes at the fears in all of us. American teenager Daisy is sent to the English countryside to stay with her cousins. She is an uptight yet rebellious youth who seems to think she is superior to her country couisins, but has her own troubles laying just below the surface. All hell breaks out soon as mysterious terrorist armed forces begin an all out assault on Western Europe. She and her cousins are told to evacuate their area, but decide to stay and fend for themselves. What starts as a fun time bonding with her extended family becomes a horrific and tragic tale of youths plunging headlong into the very adult situations of a war zone. This film gets off the ground quickly and keeps up its breakneck pace till the end. Not your typical teen film, but is expertly handled by filmaker Kevin Macdonald. Thought provoking, controversial and ultimately very entertaining.

      Great movie

      This movie was great. It puts a more realistic twist on the young adult dystopian novel. Would most teenagers know what's going on in a 3rd world war? No. And that's what this movie portrays. Excellent acting.
