Second Trailer for Andrea Arnold's 'American Honey' Adds Springsteen
A24 has unveiled the second official trailer for Andrea Arnold's American Honey, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year to some rave reviews. The film stars newcomer Sasha Lane as a teenager who joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and falls for Shia LaBeouf while trying to navigate a life of partying and passion and jealousy. Also starring McCaul Lombardi, Arielle Holmes, Crystal Ice and Riley Keough. This trailer really plays up a few quotes from our friend Ryland Aldrich's glowing review of the film, calling it the kind of outstanding work that we only see once in a generation, capturing the fleeting feeling of freedom and the tireless pursuit of the American dream. They also toss in Bruce Springsteen's "Dream Baby Dream" to help set the mood for this. I'm a big fan of the film, and I hope people check it out.
Here's the second official trailer for Andrea Arnold's American Honey, direct from A24's YouTube:

For more insight, read my review from Cannes where I call this film an "exceptional work of cinema."

Finding her feet in this gang of teenagers, one of whom is Jake (Shia LaBeouf), she soon gets into the group's lifestyle of hard-partying nights, law-bending days, and young love.
