Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #51. Andrea Arnold’s American Honey

American Honey

Director: Andrea Arnold // Writer: Andrea Arnold

Marking Arnold’s fourth title and first to film outside of the UK, she’s been quite since her award winning version of Wuthering Heights back in 2011. As a resident director at The Film Society of Lincoln Center, Arnold developed the gestating project, at one time known as Mag Crew. While major cast members have yet to be announced, filming has been rumored as starting soon by production company Protagonist Pictures. A formidable director, we’re curious to see American Honey which concerns A teenage girl with nothing to lose as she 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.

Cast: TBA

Producers: Parts and Labor Film’s Jay Van Hoy  & Lars Knudsen (The Witch), Hackney Picturehouse’s Thomas Benski and Lucas Ochoa (20,000 Days on Earth), Pouya Shahbazian (Divergent),

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available.

Release Date: Listed as being in pre-production, we’re assuming Arnold would bring her US feature to Venice for a high profile premiere, if ready in time.
