When a movie comes along that stars not just full-time Wonder-crush Shia Le Bouf, but also one of our cover babes from The Summer Issue, Sasha Lane in her breakout role, we sit up and take notice. That effect is doubled when the woman behind the camera is none other than Andrea Arnold: the British director who re-invigorated literary classic Wuthering Heights with an untamed rawness and the brilliant casting of black actor James Howson in the time-worn role of Heathcliffe – cleverly emphasising the character’s distinct otherness and winning plenty of praise in the process
With American Honey, Arnold’s subject matter is a little different and a lot more American; The movie follows a listless and wild gang of hedonistic delinquents who err America’s broad highways in the great cinematic Road Trip tradition. It went down a storm when it premiered at Cannes recently and is set for an autumn release that can’t come soon enough. As you can tell, we’re pretty excited about it, particularly after checking out the first trailer (above). So, take a look and then enjoy the images below from our exclusive Wonderland shoot with Sasha Lane herself.
