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 Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay).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

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“.."How I Live Now," suggests a certain distance, and that's rigorously maintained in the movie..”
by John Hartl [Seattle Times]
“..in a movie without adults, the children are spontaneous and natural..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..if you're a moviegoer partial to end-of-the-world stories - and I happily admit to being one of them - part of the fun is seeing how the usual signposts will be read differently..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
