Opening in theaters this Friday, November 8th is director Kevin Macdonald’s (The Last King of Scotland) adaptation of Meg Rosoff’s novel How I Live Now. The story takes place in the near future and stars Saoirse Ronan as Daisy, a teenage girl from New York City who travels to England in order to spend the summer with relatives. She strikes up a romance with another handsome young man (George MacKay), but when World War III suddenly breaks out, Daisy’s small group finds itself struggling to survive in a world full of chaos. I caught the film at TIFF and it’s an interesting (not to mention realistic) look at global warfare through the eyes of a self-involved teenager. In anticipation of the film’s release, we’ve been provided with some goodies to give away to a few lucky fans. A grand prize winner will receive a Roku 1 and a poster and copy of the book, both signed by the film’s cast. Two secondary winners will receive signed copies of the poster and book.
