A pregnant teenager, a “botanist” dad and a failed proposal are only a portion of what’s to come for the dysfunctional family in “Ten Thousand Saints.”
“Ten Thousand Saints” is the story of three New York City teenagers in the late 1980s: Vermont-native Judge, straight-edge musician Johnny and rich uptown girl Eliza. The three form their own surrogate family to break away from their dysfunctional parents. The film adaptation of Eleanor Henderson’s novel of the same name stars Ethan Hawke, Hailee Steinfeld, Emily Mortimer, Asa Butterfield and Emile Hirsch.
The film opens in theaters on August 14. Check out the exclusive clip of the film above.
