American Honey (2016)

Film
Thursday, February 2
9 pm
Cost: Free
A teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling sales crew, and gets caught up in partying, law bending and love.

UK/USA | 163 min | R | DCP | Dir. Andrea Arnold

Star (Sasha Lane), a teenage girl from a troubled home runs away with a traveling sales crew that drives across the American mid-west selling Magazine subscriptions door to door. Finding her feet in this gang of teenagers, one of whom is Jake (Shia LaBeouf), she soon gets into the group’s lifestyle of hard partying, law-bending and young love. 

"It’s about America, but it’s also about friendship and money and learning to look out for yourself, and that primal connection young people make between music and identity. It’s visually astonishing and often devastating, too. This might be the freshest film about young people in America since Larry Clark’s Kids from 1995." - Rory O'Connor (The Film Stage)
