The first footage of “How I Live Now” was showed to industry at the Cannes Film Festival people according to Empire Magazine. The movie is also being sold at the Cannes.
Film4’s contribution to British cinema over the past few decades has been virtually unparalleled – and, judging by the slate we saw previewed today here in Cannes, that’s not about to change in a hurry.
At a lunch at Film4′s Cannes HQ (sadly, not a building in the shape of a giant four – they’re slipping up), Film4’s Tessa Ross, who won a Bafta earlier in the year, cued up a showreel that contained brief glimpses at around a dozen forthcoming Film4 titles. The future is bright. Here’s a film-by-film rundown.
How I Live Now
A dialogue-free look at Kevin Macdonald’s adaptation of Meg Rosoff’s novel about a young New Yorker whose summer holiday with her English cousins is interrupted by a cataclysmic war. Saoirse Ronan is the American cousin, George Mackay – him again – looked suitably swoonsome as the boy with whom she falls madly in love. Hard to judge at this stage, but it looked more lived-in and real than most books based on young adult novels, while we’re sure Ronan – surely the best young actress around – will deliver again.

Saoirse (pronounced SIR-sha, “like inertia”) Ronan plays an alien and a human in the same body in the new romantic sci-fi film “The Host,” based on a book by “Twilight” series author Stephenie Meyer. Ronan, who turns 19 in April, is already a seasoned thespian, with an Oscar nod for her performance in 2007′s “Atonement.”
Are you a fan of the “Twilight” vampire romance book and film series and its author, Stephenie Meyer? Is that what drew you to “The Host”?
Yes, that was definitely one of the draws for me to work with Stephenie. I had read the first “Twilight” book when I was 14 and really liked how clear she made something like first love and discovering yourself. I haven’t seen many of the films, to be honest — I think I saw the first one and the last one, but it was more the books that I liked.

At just 19 years old, Saoirse Ronan already has a more diverse resume than many actresses three times her age. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for Atonement (at 13!), played a brutally-murdered teen in The Lovely Bones, and starred as a steely young assassin in Hanna. Off-screen, the Irish beauty’s style is as eclectic as her film roles. Equally polished and edgy, Saoirse glams up the red carpet with ease and grace—and just the right amount of swagger. This month, she stars alongside fellow style star Diane Kruger in sci-fi romance The Host, based on the book by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer. She took a few minutes out of her time stateside to talk favorite costumes, prissy dressing, and worshiping Tilda Swinton.
WWW: What does it mean to you when you get into costume for a film?
SR: I think it’s a really important part of building a character. To have time with the costume designer and director before you begin shooting is wonderful. Sometimes you’re building a character from outside in, and you take in the physicality of the person you’re playing through your clothes. They’re a big part of who the person is.
