When a global conflict erupts, Elizabeth (Ronan), a 15 year-old New Yorker, is sent away to live with her cousins in a remote part of the English countryside. There, she and her cousin Edmond (MacKay) face a bitter fight to keep themselves safe and their family together.
Macdonald's film is a noble stab at bringing Meg Rosoff's YA novel to the screen, which sees Ronan in typically watchable form.
