How I Live Now review

Saoirse Ronan finds love in a time of war in this bittersweet teen drama

Adapted from the award-winning young-adult bestseller of the same name, this near-future thriller tells the story of an American teenager (Saoirse Ronan) trapped in the UK with relatives she hardly knows when war breaks out in Europe and the country is turned into a military state. While director Kevin Macdonald's bittersweet film doesn't pull any punches, it's also packed with strikingly beautiful images, which this Blu-ray's AVC 1.85:1 1080p transfer excels at recreating in the home. Extras are sadly limited to just a six-minute Making of… featurette and eleven deleted scenes.
