Opening in theaters this Friday, November 8th is director Kevin Macdonald’s (The Last King of Scotland) adaptation of Meg Rosoff’s novel How I Live Now.  The story takes place in the near future and stars Saoirse Ronan as Daisy, a teenage girl from New York City who travels to England in order to spend the summer with relatives.  She strikes up a romance with another handsome young man (George MacKay), but when World War III suddenly breaks out, Daisy’s small group finds itself struggling to survive in a world full of chaos.  I caught the film at TIFF and it’s an interesting (not to mention realistic) look at global warfare through the eyes of a self-involved teenager.  In anticipation of the film’s release, we’ve been provided with some goodies to give away to a few lucky fans.  A grand prize winner will receive a Roku 1 and a poster and copy of the book, both signed by the film’s cast.  Two secondary winners will receive signed copies of the poster and book.

Hit the jump to find out how you can win, and be sure to watch Steve’s video interviews with Ronan and MacKay from TIFF.  How I Live Now opens in theaters on November 8th.
