When a military conflict erupts in the peaceful U.K. countryside, a budding romance is put to the ultimate test in the second trailer for How I Live Now. Saoirse Ronan stars as Daisy, a young American sent to live in England with relatives, who falls for her neighbor Edmund (George MacKay) before a violent war breaks out. Directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland), this drama arrives in theaters and on VOD formats November 8.

Set in the near-future UK, Ronan plays Daisy, an American teenager sent to stay with relatives in the English countryside. Initially withdrawn and alienated, she begins to warm up to her charming surroundings, and strikes up a romance with the handsome Edmund (George MacKay). But on the fringes of their idyllic summer days are tense news reports of an escalating conflict in Europe. As the UK falls into a violent, chaotic military state, Daisy finds herself hiding and fighting to survive.
