After it made the rounds at the Cannes Film Market last year, Ten Thousand Saints played the Sundance Film Festival this year to strong reviews and is now set to hit theaters on Aug. 14 and today the first official trailer arrived.

Starring Ethan Hawke and Asa Butterfield, the film is set against the backdrop of the New York City of the late 1980s; Adoption, teen pregnancy, drugs, hardcore punk rock, the unbridled optimism and reckless stupidity of the young–and old–all play a role in the story of the son (Butterfield) of diehard hippies (Hawke and Emily Mortimer) and his strange odyssey through the extremes of late 20th century youth culture.

Hailee Steinfeld, Emile Hirsch and Julianne Nicholson co-star with Bob Pulcini and Shari Berman (American Splendor) delivering the script and directing. Check out the trailer below.
