AMERICAN HONEY (2016)

Join us for a sexy summer road movie with a big heart.

Looking to escape from an abusive homelife and a desperate situation, Star joins a group of travellers, young people who are living on the edge of society, resorting to selling magazine subscriptions and petty crime to survive. We follow Star’s search for both independence and belonging amongst these young rebels on a dreamy ride through several American states.

Arnold found her actors by ‘street casting’ non-professionals, spotting Sasha Lane on the beach during the American spring break. The pay-off for Arnold’s vision is an outstanding and intimate performance by Lane playing the troubled but brave Star. American Honey was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival where it won the Jury Prize.
