Hoping to bring back the atmosphere of New York circa the late 1980s, “Ten Thousand Saints” depicts troubled teens trying to find themselves amidst the punk period. The film is adapted from Eleanor Henderson’s novel and is written and directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (“American Splendor,” “Cinema Verite”). Ethan Hawke, Asa Butterfield, Emile Hirsch, Hailee Steinfeld and Emily Mortimer star.

The official synopsis reads: “‘Ten Thousand Saints’ is a coming-of-age story about three teenagers in late 1980’s New York City — Jude (Butterfield), new to the city from Vermont, “straight-edge” musician Johnny (Hirsch), and troubled, rich uptown girl Eliza (Steinfeld) — who break away from their messed up parents (Hawke and Mortimer) to form their own surrogate family.”

The film will be released in theaters and On Demand August 14. Watch the trailer above.
