Saoirse Ronan is featured in several new stills from the film 'How I Live Now', which is directed by Kevin Macdonald and co-stars Tom Holland, George MacKay, Harley Bird, and Anna Chancellor.
The film is based on a book, and the synopsis is, "Daisy (Ronan), a teenager from New York, 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."
The stills from the film are mostly romantic in nature, although there are some that show Ronan being taken into custody by the military and another with Ronan holding a gun.
Saoirse Ronan is just coming off the critically and financially disappointing 'The Host', which failed to live up to expectation with an abysmal Rotten Tomatoes rating and a terrible box office. However, Ronan's already got plenty of projects in the can, including a possibly role as the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming 'Avengers 2'. She will next be seen in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel', 'How To Catch A Monster', 'Testament of Youth', and a biopic called 'Queen Mary of Scots'.
