Saoirse Ronan certainly likes to pick a diverse range of movies, from the mainstream sci-fi of The Host to the arty horror of Byzantium. She’s also got How I Live Now coming up, and we can now get our first look with the movie’s trailer.
Directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King Of Scotland), Ronan plays Daisy, a teenage girl from New York City who travels to England to spend the summer with family in the English countryside. However, when World War III breaks out and insurgents invade, Daisy and a younger girl named Piper must survive alone in the woods as they try to make it to safety. So it’s a bit like Red Dawn except with more tea and scones.
An October UK release is set.
