This fall, come on and dream, baby dream! A24 presents the stirring trailer for American Honey. In this slice of pure Americana, a teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits. The teaser is set to the anthemic Bruce Springsteen ballad 'Dream Baby Dream', which sets the tone for the drama that plays out.
Overflowing with electric, primal energy, American Honey is an immersive, exhilarating odyssey of heartbreaking beauty. It is a generation-defining movie that celebrates the defiant resilience of young people looking for a place they belong. These teens are chasing their own version of the American Dream, and there may be only one person who can truly show them what that is.
'Optimistic and just plain beautiful...A film for this generation', raves Ryland Aldrich of Twitch. American Honey comes from acclaimed director Andrea Arnold, who took home the Jury Prize at Festival de Cannes. Arnold is best known for her 2009 indie drama Fish Tank starring Katie Jarvis and Michael Fassbender. She also directed 2011's Wuthering Heights. Before embarking on American Honey, she helmed two important episodes of the Amazon smash hit Transparent.
