How I Live Now — Very unusual teen romance with well developed backdrop — 8*/10

  • Scenario: Great ideas, unexpected turns, and nice pacing. Some little teen romance thrown in with war front fear gives us a truly unique mix. The scenario is well split between before and after. It almost feels like two movies. The events are kept strictly from the point of view of the main female lead which makes it interesting because we're not dragged in the rest of the events and thus neatly avoid needing to elaborate or trying to compete with potential war scenarios.
  • Dialogs: Solid and pretty realistic.
  • Characters: Well built and easy to relate to.
  • Actors: Good work on the part of everyone. Cast members include Saoirse Ronan.
  • Photography: Well done with some especially beautiful scenes.
  • Sound: Good music and score.
  • Special effects: None.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Those looking for unusual teen romance.
