American Honey (2016)

Director: Andrea Arnold. Cast: Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough, Will Patton. 163 min. Rated R. UK/USA. Drama.

A teenage girl joins a door-to-door magazine sales group, crossing the country with her wild newfound friends. With all their delinquencies, these kids are fairly innocent, and therefore you expect something awful to happen to any of them any minute. And while I wasn't bored watching this near 3-hour road movie (with Will Patton popping up as a mid-movie charm), the heroes were hard to relate to, and there wasn't anything new or unexpected about such free-roaming people's lifestyles. The film's numerous Cannes and BAFTA wins and nominations are beyond me.
