Synopsis 3.5 stars out of 4 -- Arnold shoots AMERICAN HONEY in her typical full-frame 1.33:1 style and it creates a visually fascinating aesthetic....It’s effective because it keeps us with our characters instead of visually wandering the landscape.[It's] frequently breathtaking in its raw-nerve beauty....Arnold touches on a lot -- rural poverty in America, class divisions, the impulsiveness and recklessness of youth -- but never tames her film into a strict polemic. -- Grade: A-It probes the murk and terror beneath the surface of contemporary life....By turns observant and exuberant, and sweet in a way that is both unexpected and organic.[A] wild, rambling and astonishingly beautiful fourth feature....With its its jagged rhythms, thistle-rough textures and dreamy, star-spangled lyricism, AMERICAN HONEY is less a character study than a full-on sensory immersion in a young woman’s rapidly shifting consciousness.3 stars out of 4 -- [Lane] brings an untamed screen presence that somehow grounds the proceedings even as she threatens to go rogue at any second.Andrea Arnold is hardly interested in conventional storytelling....Her America is all feral chance and possibility, and it’s intoxicating. -- Grade: A-5 stars out of 5 -- AMERICAN HONEY presents an endless summer in which everyone lives in the incandescent moment.Arnold’s gang may look like hipster outcasts, but they’re kids on an adventure, and their sense of joy, despite the world’s hostility, is irresistible.Lane gives a brilliant performance that grounds this cinematic odyssey worth every minute of its nearly three-hour running time.AMERICAN HONEY injects a visceral human element into the spaces where hard reporting doesn’t.In order to escape her dead-end life in Oklahoma, an 18-year-old named Star (Sasha Lane) joins a crew of young salespeople who are hawking magazine subscriptions across the Midwest. Along the way, she falls for a charismatic co-worker (Shia LaBeouf). Riley Keough co-stars. Written and directed by Andrea Arnold (FISH TANK).
