AMER­I­CAN HONEY

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

★★★★ Di­rected by An­drea Arnold. Star­ring Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Arielle Holmes, Ri­ley Keough, McCaul Lom­bardi Fol­low­ing two slices of English re­al­ism and an adap­ta­tion of

Wuther­ing Heights, Arnold hits the US with the tale of a young posse sell­ing magazine sub­scrip­tions through­out the west and mid­west. The film is full of thrilling set pieces and out­breaks of Arnold’s char­ac­ter­is­tic grubby vis­ual po­etry. Lane is a break­out; LaBeouf is an­noy­ing on pur­pose. There is, how­ever, no es­cap­ing the con­clu­sion that this ram­bling film could lose half an hour. (Then again, it could also gain an hour.) 16 cert, lim re­lease, 162 min
