Andrea Arnold's American Honey

"You're hired." A24 has launched the first outstanding trailer for the acclaimed new film from filmmaker Andrea Arnold, titled American Honey. This first played at the Cannes Film Festival (read my glowing review) where it received lots of positive reviews and won the Jury Prize. The film stars newcomer Sasha Lane as a teenager who joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and falls for Shia LaBeouf while trying to navigate a life of partying and passion and jealousy. Also starring McCaul Lombardi, Arielle Holmes, Crystal Ice and Riley Keough. This trailer reveals lots but it also perfectly captures the vibe of this film and why it's so brilliant, since it truly is a masterwork capturing the lives of this generation of youngsters.

Here's the first official trailer for Andrea Arnold's American Honey, direct from A24's YouTube:

For those wondering, the songs in the trailer are: "I Like Tuh" by Carnage + "God's Whisper" by Raury.

American Honey Poster

For more insight, read my review from Cannes where I call this film an "exceptional work of cinema."

Star (Sasha Lane), an adolescent girl from a troubled home, runs away with a traveling sales crew who drive across the American Midwest selling 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 nights, law-bending days, and young love. American Honey is both written & directed by talented English filmmaker Andrea Arnold, of the films Red Road, Wuthering Heights and Fish Tank previously. This won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival after premiering In Competition at the fest this May. A24 will release Arnold's American Honey in select theaters later this fall. You definitely want to see it. Stay tuned.

Reminds me a little of the freight hoppers, but with more unreserved partying. Tod Seelie captured a lot of images similar to this film, his photos are worth a look if you google him. Looks an interesting ride.

It's strange. It looks like a cliche and that's bad. But it's good looking cliche. As for Shia LeBeouf, huh, I hope he will grow up ...
