Watch ‘American Honey’ on Netflix

A24 Films

American Honey, starring Sasha Lane, has a well-developed feeling of summertime and creates a relatable environment. Sasha Lane plays a teen named Star trying to get away from a troubled home by joining a traveling magazine sales group, with most of them not having anyone to miss them. While going door to door in the Midwest, her sales crew becomes like her family and they get into several adventures involving drugs and breaking the law. The actors make their characters into actual people you may see on the side of the road and ground them in reality. Sasha Lane and her co-star Shia LaBeouf have strong chemistry between them and give standout performances, especially Lane.

The director Andrea Arnold fills the movie with a soft, dream-like charm and captures the feeling of freedom in doing dangerous things. She has a raw style that highlights the small details to form the big picture. Close shots of objects, people, and animals induce nostalgia and compile to make a vivid setting.
