American Honey is an audacious love story directed by Andrea Arnold, one of the most interesting contemporary film directors, an American Academy Award™ nominee and winner of Cannes Jury Prize and BAFTA awards (Red Road, Fish Tank).
Captivating and vivid in its imagery, American Honey was enthusiastically received by audience in Cannes. Till the very end the film was many critics’ pick for the Palme d’Or, eventually winning the Jury Prize. Arnold created a fictional modern-day story rooted in reality. Out of 15 young people cast as crew members, 11 had never acted before – Arnold scouted for talent while travelling across America. The music in American Honey is a touchstone for the characters, with songs chosen by the young crew (Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Sam Hunt, Lee Brice, Raury, The Raveonettes, Bruce Springsteen).
American Honey is an exquisitely illustrated road trip drama about a group of friends who take to the road across America with their favourite tunes in the background. Vibrating with music and emotions, it is a story about finding one’s own way in life.
