American Honey

British writer-director Andrea Arnold focuses her socially-realist lens on Midwest America in this immersive experience of a movie about young love, hedonism and dashed hopes. With ravishing, restless visuals and a soaring soundtrack, it resists both judgement and romanticism, opting instead for something that is brutal and bittersweet.

Synopsis

Star (Sasha Lane), a teenager living in extreme poverty, attracts the attention of Jake (Shia LaBeouf) at a supermarket where he invites her to join his rag-tag crew of on-the-road subscription-sellers. She leaves behind the responsibility of caring for her young siblings and embarks on a hedonistic adventure of hard-partying nights, lawless days and intoxicating love.
