movie news: First trailer for Saoirse Ronan’s How I Live Now1 Comment
Saoirse Ronan’s light just keeps burning brighter and brighter.
Today sees the release of the first trailer for her latest film. In How I Live Now, Saoirse Ronan plays an American teenager with attitude who’s sent to live in the seemingly idyllic English countryside for the summer. While Ronan’s Daisy struggles to adjust to the change of pace from Manhattan, she suddenly finds her world completely changed again when World War breaks out.
If you’re a follower of average film reviews then you’ll know that I do love a good apocalyptic drama, even if it does sound like this one is a bit more of a romance. Basically anything with a hint of dystopia and I’m there so this trailer has definitely piqued my interest. Happily, it also looks as though Saoirse Ronan is branching out a little, I do think she’s getting a bit typecast as the ethereal, oddly mature child, so stroppy teenager is welcome. Even if it looks like it’s just for a little while.
How I Live Now has crept into the schedule for me, I hadn’t heard anything of note about it till today, but it’s certainly going on my list of ones to keep an eye out for in the rest of 2013.
Take a look at the trailer and let me know what you think.
