"American Honey" is one film as you watch you get memories back of "Easy Rider" as both are clearly a road journey of discovery and freedom, only with this picture which is too moved along by the music and songs played during it looks at it from the female perspective as the central character is that of a young teenage girl. Set in the south a young southern girl named Star(newcomer Sasha Lane)is currently living a life with a man and some young kids and it's clear she needs a new start and escape from this redneck and trailer park trash way of life. So after she decides to head out with a traveling group of young boys and girls(who sale magazines as a group) her life on the road becomes wide open and full of soul searching and discovery of herself and others.The film is nearly three hours long so it's clearly an in depth journey as the group travels across the south and west, Star enjoys a lot more than selling magazines she becomes a fan of some hard partying and even sees a side of law breaking on the trip of stops. Star also is taken under the wing by Jake(Shia LaBeouf)a leader of the group type who enjoys having raw and lust type outdoor sex with Star. Thru all of the adventures and side subplots Star(who sports a sexy pink bra)who's sexy in a raw type manner learns a lot about herself and life by seeing different people as on the open road it proves that life is a journey just as on any trip discovery is found as it is often is in life too. Clearly this movie is a film of finding open freedom and discovery finding one's self thru journey and travel as that's what Star did she saw life thru people and the road as a journey that opens up new discovery. "American Honey" is clearly one movie to watch for a feel good journey time of freedom and escape as life intersects with travel for a revealing of discovery and happiness.
Star, 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.
