Andrea Arnold: ‘I always aim to get under the belly of a place’

9 October 2016 12:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Fish Tank director Andrea Arnold talks about her new movie, American Honey, which stars Shia Labeouf and explores the Us phenomenon of ‘mag crews’ – rootless young outsiders who rove the midwest selling magazine subscriptions

In 2012, Andrea Arnold was en route to Salt Lake City airport after an intense two days of press interviews at the Sundance film festival in Utah, where her adaptation of Wuthering Heights had just had its American premiere. It was still dark as she left her hotel at five in the morning, but as the shuttle bus rounded a bend in the road, the sun rose and the elemental landscape around her was suddenly revealed. “I had a bit of an emotional moment,” she says now. “It just hit me that being in this beautiful place for only two days felt so wrong.”

I met kids from mag crews. I stayed in all the same places they would stay, »

Arthouse Audit: ‘Denial’ and ‘American Honey’ Jump-Start Fall Box Office

2 October 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fall has arrived. Two new limited releases opened at the $20,000 per theater level that used to be a regular feature for New York/Los Angeles initial platform releases.

Denial” (Bleecker Street) and “American Honey” (A24) – both from relatively new distributors who show an ability to navigate the arthouse market’s tough shoals – are the highest in this traditional release model in the two months since Roadside Attractions’ “Indignation.”

That’s a long stretch. Some distributors have chosen wider initial city play, such as Lionsgate/CBS Films’ niche leader “Hell or High Water.” But numerous films have fallen short, and neither of these new releases was an automatic sell. So these are encouraging results.

Going a bit wider, unusual for a subtitled film, Music Box’s “A Man Called Ove” sought immediate positive audience reaction to give Sweden’s Oscar submission a chance to thrive going forward.

'American Honey' Review: Teens Run Wild, Shia Labeouf Gets His Comeback

30 September 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Steady as a preacher, free as a weed," goes the Lady Antebellum tune that gives filmmaker Andrea Arnold's teenage-island-of-misfit-toys road movie its title. You can see why those two things might be aspirations for Star (newcomer Sasha Lane), the teenager we first meet digging through the trash for food, grubby kid siblings in tow. Stability and liberation aren't things she comes across a lot. Her life is a wreck, her residence is a parody of Southern trashiness (ants on the counter, handsy stepdad in the living room, Dixie flag »

'American Honey': The Story Behind the Year's Best Road Movie

30 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Around the time that she was putting the finishing touches on her 2009 drama Fish Tank, English writer-director Andrea Arnold stumbled upon a 2007 New York Times piece about the desperate lives of "mag crews." It was a frank look at the young runaways traveling in groups across America, hawking magazine subscriptions when they weren't sleeping on floors in motel rooms. "I was gonna do it after Fish Tank," Arnold says. "Then, after I finished my next movie" – an adaptation of Emily Brontë's classic novel Wuthering Heights – "I wanted to get back to this. »

20 September 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Protagonist Pictures has closed a bevy of sales on William Oldroyd’s “Lady Macbeth,” which was hailed as one of Toronto’s hottest titles and has been warmly received at the San Sebastian festival.

Following Roadside Attractions’s acquisition for North America and Betta Pictures’ pickup for Spain, “Lady Macbeth” was sold to the U.K. (Altitude Film); France (Kmbo); Australia/New Zealand (Sharmill Films); Latin America (California Filmes); Benelux (Cherry Pickers Filmdistributie Bv); Greece (Strada Films); Scandinavia, Iceland and Baltics (Non Stop Entertainment); Middle East (Front Row Filmed Entertainment); Portugal (Alambique); and airlines (Jaguar Distribution Corp).

‘Lady Macbeth’ Review: Florence Pugh Is a Persecuted Woman Who Takes Control In Powerful Dark Drama

15 September 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Lady Macbeth” reveals the essence of its plot in the title, but the dark twists of the thrilling narrative still manage to surprise. The feature-length debut of British theater director William Oldroyd suggests what might happen if Alfred Hitchcock directed “Wuthering Heights.” Adapting from Nikolai Leskov’s 1865 novel, Oldroyd and screenwriter Alice Birch transport the action to 19th century England and boil down its essence to the machinations of a driven young woman fiercely embodied by newcomer Florence Pugh. She begins the movie as an object of sympathy, and even as she grows more cunning and devious in her intentions, it’s easy to comprehend her psychotic drive.

As the story begins, young Katherine (Pugh) has been forced into a marriage with the heir to an industrial fortune (Paul Hilton) many years older than her. It doesn’t take long to establish her overwhelming discomfort: Smothered by corsets and frustrated »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Lady Macbeth’

9 September 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shakespeare’s conniving Queen of Scotland is nowhere to be found in it, but a whole lot of courage gets screwed to the sticking place in “Lady Macbeth.” An impressively stark, narratively ruthless Victorian chamber piece that feels about as modern as its crinolines will permit, William Oldroyd’s pristine debut feature slowly reveals a violent moral ambiguity that needles the mind far longer than its polite period-piece trappings suggest. This disquieting drama of an arranged marriage gone drastically awry may come to be most remembered, however, as the film that gave 19-year-old Florence Pugh her first leading-lady showcase: Fully realizing the promise of earlier, smaller parts, the British actress impresses with precocious poise, sensuality and venom in a still-waters role just about worthy of the film’s eponymous inspiration. Though the film’s austere outlook limits its commercial appeal to the Masterpiece Theater crowd, it has the makings of »

American Honey Trailer Takes Shia Labeouf on a Wild Road Trip

17 August 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

‘American Honey’ Trailer: Cannes Winner Explores The American Dream For New Generation

17 August 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s an overwhelming tendency in the American character to drop out of society and tune in to the rhythm of the road, exploring first hand the heart of the fickle so-called “American Dream.” Andrea Arnold’s latest film “American Honey” takes us into that Dream once again, but for a whole new generation. The film follows Star (Sasha Lane), a teenage girl living in a broken home with nothing to lose. One day, she encounters the charismatic Jake (Shia Labeouf), who convinces her to run away and join their band of traveling magazine salesman in order to fund their nomadic lifestyle. Though she initially falls in love with Jake and into the group’s hard partying, law breaking ways, she soon discovers the ugly side of their journey through the Midwest. The film also stars Arielle Holmes (“Heaven Knows What”), Riley Keough (“The Girlfriend Experience”), and more. Watch a »

‘Men Go To Battle’: How To Shoot a Period Piece Indie

6 July 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: “Men Go To Battle” is not your normal micro-budget independent film. The story of two Kentucky brothers set against the backdrop of Civil War is a perfect example of how resourceful low budget filmmakers can be, as director Zachary Treitz and his small band of collaborators creates a vibrant and credible-looking period drama. The film is much more than an inventive recreation of period, it is also an exercise in taking a modern approach to story and filmmaking to cut through the layers of historical embellishment to make a direct and intimate film that is as relatable as any set in 2016.

In the first of a series of articles about the film, cinematographer Brett Jutkiewicz talks about how he approached shooting “Men” and how he tackled the challenge of shooting in the low light, pre-electricity world of 1861.

Go Way Out West in the Trailer for Andrea Arnold's American Honey

21 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Winning the Jury Prize just last month at Cannes, Andrea Arnold's first stateside film, American Honey, starring newcomer Sasha Lane, Shia Labeouf and Riley Keough, is coming later this year courtesy of A24. Our own Ryland Aldrich declared the film "so touching, optimistic, and just plain beautiful [...] a feat sure to be appreciated and revisited by filmmakers and film viewers of this generation and for generations to come." High praise to be sure, but then again this is Andrea Arnold, arguably one of modern cinema's greatest voices, from the creeping trauma drama Red Road to the exuberant Fish Tank and a feverishly poetic Wuthering Heights adaptation.  Charting the journey of a young woman named Star (Lane) as she travels across America making money, the...

Shia Labeouf Finds Love in Party Hearty ‘American Honey’ Trailer

21 June 2016 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shia Labeouf finds romance after he recruits an adolescent girl, Star — played by newcomer Sasha Lane — to his hard-partying sales crew in Middle America in the first trailer for “American Honey.”

“It’s a business opportunity,” his character explains to Star. “We sell magazines, we explore America, we party. Come with us.”

Andrea Arnold’s road drama premiered at last month’s Cannes Film Festival, where it won the jury prize. The trailer from A24 shows Lane and Labeouf’s characters falling for each other amid a lifestyle of constant partying and occasional law-breaking.

“Even viewers who find this traveling circus of cheap thrills and cheaper booze wearying would be hard pressed to deny the iridescent vitality with which it has been put on screen,” Variety film critic Guy Lodge wrote in his review of “American Honey.”

First Trailer For Andrea Arnold’s Cannes Winner ‘American Honey’

21 June 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following up Wuthering Heights early this decade, Fish Tank director Andrea Arnold is finally back with American Honey, which picked up the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (and we also named it one of the best of the festival). Starring newcomer Sasha Lane, as well as Shia Labeouf and Riley Keough, it follows teenager who gets caught up with a traveling magazine sales crew as she ventures through the Midwest. Shot once again by Robbie Ryan, it looks like a vibrant drama judging by the first trailer, which A24 has released today.

We said in our review, “European directors have often faltered when crossing the Atlantic. Billy Wilder and Wim Wenders found things to say where Paolo Sorrentino could not. American Honey is certainly the former. Based on a 2007 article from the New York Times, it’s a backwater American road movie directed by an Englishwoman, »

‘American Honey’ Trailer: Sasha Lane & Shia Labeouf Wreak Havoc Across the Heartland in Andrea Arnold’s Cannes Prizewinner

21 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Andrea Arnold’s “American Honey” was one of the most acclaimed selections of the Cannes Film Festival this year, winning critical plaudits in addition to the Jury Prize — Arnold’s second after 2006’s “Red Road.” (Many considered it a Palme d’Or contender, but Ken Loach’s “I, Daniel Blake” took the top prize instead.) Ahead of the film’s release later this year, A24 has released its first trailer.

American Honey” marks the film debut of Sasha Lane, who stars as a young runaway whose path intersects with that of Shia Labeouf and Riley Keough’s characters: young adults whose waywardness is considerably more dangerous than her own. She joins their itinerant tribe, which whiles away the day selling magazine subscriptions before partying once the sun goes down.

It seemed to us, going into 2016, that one of the surefire cinematic highlights of the year would be the return of Andrea Arnold. Her first film “Red Road” was one of the most striking directorial debuts of the century so far, and follow-up “Fish Tank” was even better. Not everyone loved follow-up “Wuthering Heights,” […]

The Radical Beauty of ‘Tangerine,’ Weerasethakul Primer, ‘Wuthering Heights’ Gets Musical, and More

15 June 2016 2:18 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Dailies is a round-up of essential film writing, news bits, videos, and other highlights from across the Internet. If you’d like to submit a piece for consideration, get in touch with us in the comments below or on Twitter at @TheFilmStage.

Watch a video essay on the radical beauty of Tangerine:

Apichatpong Weerasethakul talks to Little White Lies about what inspired him to make movies:

It was Spielberg. Raiders of the Lost Ark, Et and Close Encounters were really important to me. I didn’t think it’d be possible, but I just wanted to be involved in some way. When I discovered experimental cinema in Chicago, I found that a better fit with my nature – very personal, and something I could do by myself, in a darkroom, with a small group of people.

Explore the sound of 10 Cloverfield Lane with a video montage:

BFI‘s John Berra on where to begin with Apichatpong Weerasethakul:

Newcomers to the spellbinding cinematic realm of Apichatpong Weerasethakul – often known simply as Joe – can be perplexed by its sedate rhythms, casual slippages in time, and evocations of various states of consciousness. Thailand’s leading auteur also has a preference for open-ended narratives rooted in local mythology which refrain from the kind of cultural orientation often expected by touristic arthouse patrons when venturing beyond their usual screen territories. At once earthy and otherworldly, the unique texture of his cinema hints at a mystery waiting to be solved.

Listen to a discussion on the films of Hong Sang-soo:

Village Voice‘s Calum Marsh previews BAMcinemaFest 2016:

BAMcinemaFest, the unassuming independent film festival, is now in its eighth year, and over the course of that near-decade has become quietly, even improbably, illustrious. It’s hardly a star-graced red-carpet affair. It’s never enjoyed French Riviera glamour or voguish world premieres. There are no black-tie galas or paparazzi photocalls or rafts of complimentary Champagne. But conferred upon the BAMcinemaFest’s yearly program is a degree of prestige that can pluck the gifted from obscurity or parlay promise into a career. For eight years the festival has afforded New York a glimpse of the best the American cinema has to offer. To simply be programmed here means a great deal.

“American Honey”: Somewhat Underwhelming but Lets Shia Labeouf Shine

16 May 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Three-hour or so films are all the rage this year!

Andrea Arnold joined this club today with the premiere of her fourth feature and first-us set drama “American Honey”. Arnold is one of my favourite directors and I had loved “Red Road” and “Fish Tank” (“Wuthering Heights” slightly less so). “American Honey” is closest to “Fish Tank” narratively and stylistically but unfortunately lacks the intensity and naturalness that made “Fish Tank” great. What it does have is a similar entanglement between underprivileged teenager Star (Sasha Lane) and Jake (Shia Labeouf), an older man with a certain authority over her. That, and a lot of hip-hop.

Newcomer Sasha Lane stars as Star, an 18-year from an underprivileged family (the film opens with her dumpster diving for dinner along with her younger half-siblings) in rural Oklahoma who decides to escape her miserable existence by joining a vanful of similarly underprivileged (white-trash) teenagers »
