Director: Andrea Arnold
Stars: Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough
Teenage Star (Sasha Lane) leaves her dysfunctional family and meets up with a gang of misfits led by Jake (Shia LaBeouf) who offers her a job travelling around the Midwest selling magazine subscriptions…
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
