Saoirse Ronan goes bleach blonde and rebellious in the first trailer for Kevin MacDonald’s adaptation of YA novel “How I Live Now,” which also stars “The Impossible” breakout star Tom Holland and British actor George MacKay.
Ronan plays Daisy, an American girl who is sent to stay with her aunt and cousins on an idyllic country estate in the midst of a war. The children have some fun, which includes a bit of icky, taboo flirtation between Ronan and MacKay’s Edmund, before the war reaches the farm and they’re separated and imprisoned. A daring escape and journey to get back home ensues.
“How I Live Now” has a UK release date of October 3rd, but no US date yet. But for now you can watch the first trailer below. Thanks to Page to Premiere for the head’s up!
