Sundance 2015: 'Ten Thousand Saints' Review

If you told me a film starred (among others) Ethan Hawke, Emily Mortimer and Julianne Nicholson, I'd be down. Unfortunately, Ten Thousand Saints is the second straight misfire from directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini. (Their last was the rather unfortunate Imogene, which was later renamed Girl Most Likely.) The new film stars Asa Butterfield who's on a coming-of-age quest in 1980s New York. Lots of heart in this movie, but not a lot of memorable moments. I reviewed Ten Thousand Saints for Screen International.
