American Honey

One of the standout titles at Cannes, and a Jury Prize winner, Arnold’s first American set feature is one of her finest. Set amongst a crew of hard-partying teenagers criss-crossing the Midwest while working as travelling magazine salesmen, American Honey is a poignant and poetic road movie that looks at female empowerment, largely through the eyes of its central character, Star. Shot in a 4:3 aspect ratio that pulls us closer to the landscapes and the characters, it’s propelled by a dynamic soundtrack and an unflinching eye for detail.
