Nitehawk’s BOOZE & BOOKS presents a special preview screening of the new film TEN THOUSAND SAINTS. Introduction by author Eleanor Henderson with directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini! Henderson will sign copies of the book following the screening in Nitehawk’s Lo-Res!
Adapted from the 2011 novel by Eleanor Henderson, Ten Thousand Saints is a coming-of-age story about three messed up teenagers in late 1980s New York City — Jude (Asa Butterfield), new to the city from Vermont, “straight-edge” musician Johnny (Emile Hirsch), and troubled, rich uptown girl Eliza (Hailee Steinfeld) — who break away from their equally messed up parents to form their own surrogate family.
Set in 1988, a time of great cultural upheaval — against the excesses of the decade, the AIDS epidemic and the gentrification of the city culminating in the infamous Tompkins Square Park riots — this film is a nostalgia trip to a bygone era of New York City. The official theatrical release of Ten Thousand Saints is August 14, 2015.
