Set in the near-future UK, Saoirse Ronan plays Daisy, an American teenager 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 Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay).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.

Critics Consensus: Led by another strong performance from Saoirse Ronan and a screenplay that subverts YA cliches, How I Live Now blends young love with post-apocalyptic drama.
Dark war drama depicts teen love, realistic violence.
