The film is very much in the style of UK director/writer Arnold’s previous work (Wuthering Heights; Wasp). This time it’s a road trip set in the USA, but featuring the same gritty realism of teenage sexuality as her earlier work and combining with the fine cinematography of Robbie Ryan.

Subtle American influences on Arnold’s transatlantic work include the title – taken from a song by US Country trio Lady Antebellum and, given the lifestyle of the protagonists, the whisky brand.

Note that as this film is quite long (nearly 3 hours) we have opted for an earlier start time than usual – 7PM

 

A reflective and analytical Review from the Guardian, including a link to the trailer, can be seen: here

 

Or the same – ‘official’ (US) – Trailer is here:

(nerdy note – the still image for the trailer is reversed! watch it and see that in the film LeBouf is on the left (driving) and Lane on the right!)
