After premiering at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulicini’s “Ten Thousand Saints” has a new poster just in time to prepare audiences for its upcoming theatrical release next month.

“Ten Thousand Saints” is the story of three teenagers: New York newcomer Jude, straight-edge musician Johnny and wealthy, yet troubled Eliza, who stray from their parents and create their own surrogate family. Set in 1988, the film shows the influences the 1980’s punk scene has upon them and the problems it creates for each of them. The film includes the cultural changes in New York City during that tumultuous time, including the onset of the AIDS epidemic and the creeping influence of gentrification. 

The film stars Ethan Hawke, Asa Butterfield, Emily Mortimer, Julianne Nicholson, Hailee Steinfeld and Emile Hirsch. It is based upon the Eleanor Henderson novel of the same name. 

“Ten Thousand Saints” will hit theaters and on VOD on August 14. Check out the poster below.
