From one of TFA's producers, Sasha Yelaun - Ten Thousand Saints.
The Oscar-nominated directors of American Splender, Robert Pulcini and Sheri Berman, skillfully show us on a journey back to the past late 80s CBGB period in Manhattan. Adapted from a best-selling novel, the film has a vintage feel, alongside a very raw and emotional story featuring an ensemble cast including Ethan Hawke, Haile Steinfeld, Emile Hirsch, and Asa Butterfield.
Set in the 1980s, following tragedy, teenage Jude (Asa Butterfield) moves from Vermont to New York City to live with his father (Ethan Hawke) in the punk-fueled East Village. Caught in the chaos of city life, Jude and his friends, Eliza and Teddy (Hailee Steinfeld and Emile Hirsch) embark on a journey of self-realization in a neighborhood on the verge of riots.
