  1. Y’know, I really wanted to LOVE How I Live Now as the premise was intriguing and I LOVE Saoirse, but somehow the execution just wasn’t great. It wasn’t a bad film but not a terribly good one either, I just couldn’t connect w/ the characters despite some heart-wrenching scenes.

    • Completely agreed. I said it in the full review, too, but the script doesn’t develop Daisy well enough in the picture’s first half to make us care all that much. It picks up momentum in the second half, but it still isn’t able to do quite enough.
