American Honey - Staff Pick

American Honey


Director: Andrea Arnold


"It's all about a carefree girl on a self empowered coming of age journey, leaving her old life behind and making something for herself. The use of the original soundtrack is perfectly timed and how they use commercial songs almost gives them a new meaning within the context of the film. The use of the trap/rap music within the scenes reminds the viewer that the film is just a bunch of kids having a good time and trying to make easy money alongside tackling adulthood."
