AMERICAN HONEY going to Cannes
Andrea Arnold’s AMERICAN HONEY will compete for the Palm d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in May, it was announced today.
The film follows a teenage girl with nothing to lose as she joins a traveling magazine sales crew and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as the band of misfits criss-cross the American Midwest. Starring Shia LaBeouf and Riley Keough alongside exciting newcomer Sasha Lane, the film is Andrea’s first shot in America.
Set for release in the second half of 2016, AMERICAN HONEY was produced by Parts & Laborand financed by Maven Pictures’ new film fund, BFI and Film 4.
