1980´S NEW YORK CITY…
RAGE. RIOT. REBIRTH.

Ten Thousand Saints Review by Peter A Eldon, Eken Magazine

Based on the novel from Eleanor Henderson, Ten Thousand Saints is a classic styled drama set in New York where we follow some young and confused teenagers growing up and their crazed dysfunctional parents during the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll era of the eighties. The first part of the film is really explosive and gripping but the further on the story goes it seems to get a bit stuck but keeps it curiosity until the end. This nostalgic trip through life gives you both smiles and tears while touching your heart and is a reminder of how fragile and short life is. A well-directed and written story by Sundance winners Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor) with impressive performances from this odd mixed but great cast featuring Ethan Hawke, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfield, Avan Jogia, Emilie Kirsch and Emily Mortimer.

“A nostalgic trip set in New York City during the 1980s”
