American Honey (15)
Andrea Arnold, UK, USA, 2016, 164’
Visionary award-winning Brit director Andrea Arnold makes her first US film with the story of a teenager who falls into a life on the road. Star (Sasha Lane), a teenage girl from a troubled home, runs away with a travelling sales crew who drive across the American Midwest. 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. Visually astonishing and often devastating, this is a fresh, dreamy and partly distorted tapestry of Americana that spins, sparks and explodes.
