Before Cannes even began last month, "American Honey" was the toast of the festival. The movie's director, Andrea Arnold, had already won two Cannes Jury Prizes, for 2006's "Red Road" and 2009's "Fish Tank." Arnold was also responsible for two Season 2 episodes of "Transparent," and now "American Honey" has earned the British director another Cannes Jury Prize, tying her with Ken Loach for the most received by a single filmmaker.
The first trailer for "American Honey" premiered online Tuesday. Starring Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf and Riley Keough, the movie follows a lawless magazine sales crew and their wayward misadventures through the American Midwest. Lane, a newcomer, plays a teenage drifter who joins these misfits and falls for LaBeouf's charismatic leader. Critics have compared the movie to "Kids" and "Spring Breakers," so expect a lot of Harmony Korine-esque indulgences. There's no release date yet.
