Following it's premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival – and winning two prizes in the process – Andrea Arnold's latest film, American Honey, is ready to launch itself upon the wider world.
In the tradition of Arnold finding exciting new talent for her films, the fresh face here is Sasha Lane, who plays Star, a young woman looking to escape her troubled, unfulfilling life. She falls in with a group of misfits, including Shia LaBeouf's (Fury) Jake and Riley Keough's (Mad Max: Fury Road) Krystal, who travel across the US selling magazines, getting into trouble and generally living life to its fullest. On the road, she discovers romance and danger, but are her new friends a chance to cut loose or leading her down a dangerous path?
This marks Arnold's first time filming in the US, but she retains her keen eye for coming of age stories that feel authentic. Currently playing at this years Toronto Film Festival, American Honey is set for a UK release on 14 October.
