Ten Thousand Saints movie story:
The story of Ten Thousand Saints revolved around a teenage boy Jude—named after a Beatles song by his hippie parents. Jude Keffy-Horn (Asa Butterfield), who lives in Vermont with his adoptive mother, Harriet (Julianne Nicholson), and sister, Prudence (Nadia Alexander).
He spends his high school days in Vermont getting high and mixed up in the complicated world of drugs and alcohol, his best friend, Teddy (Avan Jogia), dies of a drug overdose on the last day of 1987 after Teddy. Beneath Jude and their new friend, Eliza (Hailee Steinfeld) from Manhattan spend the night out partying, leaving Jude devastated.
Beneath Jude’s mind-numbing activities lurks a desire sent to Manhattan to reconnect with his estranged father, Les (Ethan Hawke), who abandoned the family when Jude was nine and discovers kinship with Teddy’s half-brother, Johnny (Emile Hirsch). He soon starts hanging out with Johnny’s group of straight-edge friends that have strict no-drugs, no-sex, no-meat, and no-alcohol rules, keeping Jude out of trouble for the first time in years.
When he finds out that Eliza, who is also the daughter of Les’ girlfriend, Di (Emily Mortimer), is pregnant with the child of deceased Teddy after an encounter on the night Teddy died, he and Johnny, along with Les, become Eliza’s rock as she struggles through pregnancy so early on in life, and the three become a family of sorts, in hopes to raise the child together. Meanwhile, Di struggles with her relationship with Les, and Harriet struggles with the prospect of her growing children.
It is a coming-of-age story following three messed up teenagers and their equally messed up parents in 1987, the age of CBGBs, yuppies, and gentrification that culminated in the Tompkins Square Park riots.
