Set in the 1980s, Jude (Asa Butterfield) spends his high school days in small-town Vermont getting high with his best friend Teddy. Beneath Jude’s mind-numbing activities lurks a desire to reconnect with his estranged father, Les (Ethan Hawke), who abandoned the family when Jude was nine. Following a tragedy, Jude’s mother sends him to live with Les in New York City. In the roiling and raw East Village, Jude struggles to establish an identity within the cultural upheaval downtown. He forms an unlikely surrogate family with Teddy’s straight-edge punk brother (Emile Hirsch) and a troubled, rich uptown girl (Hailee Steinfeld). Together, they embark on a journey of self-realization in a neighborhood on the verge of riots. Based on the novel Ten Thousand Saints by Eleanor Henderson and featuring an authentic soundtrack of music from the era, TEN THOUSAND SAINTS was written and directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini and produced by Luca Borghese, Anne Carey, Amy Nauiokas, Celin
