Watch the trailer for Andrea Arnold and Shia Lebouf’s American Honey

After winning the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival this year, there have been more than a few people waiting for a glimpse of Andrea Arnold’s trans-America visual bildungsroman.

The trailer has at last reached the Internet, and it’s exactly the emphatic and chaotic two and half minutes one would expect from Arnold. The story is a venture into millennial America, following a teenage girl who flees a troubled home to join a traveling magazine sales crew, traversing across the American Midwest.

Newcomer Sash Lane takes the lead with Shia LaBeouf as the wayward love interest and an assemblage of new, promising actors join the two in their small plotted pursuit of the American dream .

American Honey is expected to see a theatrical release later in the year.
