Directed by Shari Berman, Robert Pulcini
An emphatically observed story of a frayed tangle of family members brought together by an unexpected death, Shari Springer Berman and Robert Puccini’s adaptation of Eleanor Henderson’s critically revered novel of the same name, 10,000 SAINTS finds a cast including Asa Butterfield, Hailee Seinfeld, Ethan Hawke, Emily Mortimer and Emile Hirsch splitting time between the late 80’s punk and hardcore scene of LES New York and the easy country living of Vermont. Teenage Jude (Butterfield) moves from Vermont to New York City to live with his father (Hawke) in the punk-fueled East Village. Caught in the chaos of city life, Jude and his friends, Eliza and Teddy (Steinfeld and Hirsch) embark on a journey of self-realization in a neighborhood on the verge of riots.
