How I Live Now

  • Director: Kevin Macdonald
  • Genre(s): Action, Drama, Thriller, War

  • Running Time: 101 min.

Daisy (Saoirse Ronan), an American teenager, is 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 Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay). 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.

"Tender, humane, and searing, How I Live Now stands as something all too rare: a movie about young people that young people may love — but not one that lies to them, and not one built for them alone."
- Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
"A forceful performance from Saoirse Ronan."
- Justin Chang, Variety
"Its relish for love in the face of adversity ultimately sets it apart and makes it something of a tender charmer of a film."
- Mark Adams, Screen Daily
"A sterling adaptation of a great modern novel."
- Daniel Anderson, Click Online
"Macdonald's movie is a kind of fairy tale. While in the Marvel franchises, the good guys always win, The House I Live In explores the far more tangible process of simply remaining alive at all costs -- and finding, against impossible odds, justification for living through another day."
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
