Synopsis

A teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a travelling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits, under the influence of controlling Jake, played by Shia LaBeouf.

Apart from LaBeaouf, Arnold ‘street cast’ the film, including the lead Sacha Lane, from impromptu auditions on parking lots, beaches, construction sites and state fairs. The third Cannes Jury prize-winning film by writer/director Arnold to be screened at Keswick (Red Road, KFF 2007; Fish Tank, KFC 2009) American Honey is her first film to be set outside the UK.
