She brings that sensibility to American Honeyher first movie in the United States, and she turns this minute amble across the highways into a trip well worth undertaking. Sasha Lane stars as Star, an year-old mixed-race girl living in Oklahoma who gets spotted by a guy named Jake Shia LaBeouf as she dumpster-dives for food for herself and her two stepsiblings. She winds up living out of cheap motels with her fellow saleskids all over the Plains States. Lest you think this is some sort of slog through rural poverty, Arnold cuts these with humorous interludes like when Jake tries to sell to a devout Christian housewife while her teenage daughters distract him by doing sexy dance moves in the backyard.
She also conjures up scenes of great lyrical beauty, as when the kids take a pee break and find themselves staring into an awe-inspiring canyon, or when the girls sing along to the Lady Antebellum song that gives this movie its name. More lightness comes from LaBeouf, who provides further proof that he can actually act.
He has a ponytail and an eyebrow piercing but also a pocket protector and a sparkly iPhone case.
Arnold has worked wonders with neophyte lead actresses before, and here she finds a fiery presence, as Lane makes Star into someone alert, curious, prickly, and fiercely sexual after she starts an affair with Jake. Written and directed by Andrea Arnold. Rated R. Now playing in Dallas.
