Finished binge-watching on Netflix and need something new to enjoy? We’ve got you covered with a powerful new drama you need to see.
‘Ten Thousand Saints’ is set in 1980 New York and features a stellar young cast including singer/actress Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Pitch Perfect 2) and Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender’s Game), alongside four-time Academy Award nominee, Ethan Hawke (Training Day, Boyhood, The Purge).
The film is based on Eleanor Henderson’s multigenerational drama novel about a troubled teen, Jude (Butterfield), lost in sex, drugs and alcohol. Desperate to keep her son out of trouble, Jude’s mother sends him to live with Les in New York City. In the punk-fuelled East Village, Jude forms an unlikely surrogate family with Teddy’s brother Johnny (Emile Hirsch) and rich uptown girl Eliza (Steinfeld), as they try to hide a life-changing secret in a neighbourhood on the verge of riots.
‘Ten Thousand Saints’ is available for digital download from 4th April 2016 and on DVD from 18th April 2016. Are you excited? Let us know at @maximumpop.
