Sasha Lane was the second choice for Star. Andrea Arnold had originally cast and rehearsed with a completely different girl, but she backed out two weeks before filming started. Director Andrea Arnold had to slightly rewrite the scripts for Star and Jake due to this. See more »
After Jake steals the white Cadillac and hits the road, the right side mirror housing is blue. In a later shot it's white again - the same color as the rest of the car. See more »
Where's that accent from?
So you're a southern girl. A real American honey like me. You know that song?

The closing credits, after the lead actor names, consist of a list of names, alphabetized by first name, with no indication of whether they are crew or cast -- no job titles or character names. And there are no opening credits. See more »

Andrea Arnold's "American Honey" is a bold and ambitious film filled with good performances, and for the most part I like this film, but boy does it have a ton of pitfalls. "American Honey" is repetitive, bombastic, overlong, and filled with unlikable characters, and most of the repetitiveness comes from these characters constantly listening to and singing to rap music in their white van. Sitting through 2 hours and 43 minutes of this film felt more like a chore than a cinematic experience. I'm looking forward to what Andrea Arnold has in store for us next, I truly am, and hopefully her next film won't be as preposterously long as this.
