Check out your first look at Saoirse Ronan in How I Live Now!
The 18-year-old actress plays lead Daisy, a teenager from New York who is sent to the English countryside for the summer to stay with cousins. She soon immerses herself in a dreamy pastoral idyll as she falls madly in love with Eddie (George MacKay), until their perfect summer is blown apart by the sudden outbreak of a 21st century world war.
Along with Eddie’s younger siblings, Isaac (Tom Holland) and Piper (Harley Bird), they are left in isolation and forced to fend for themselves. When they are violently separated, Daisy must embark on a terrifying journey in order to be reunited with the boy she loves.
Based on author Meg Rosoff‘s novel, she wrote on her official blog about Saoirse, “The fact that I have not mentioned yet again how astonishingly beautiful and talented our lead actress is, merely reflects the principle that you don’t need to tell a person eating a plate of white truffle pasta that it’s delicious. They know.”
