The Critically Acclaimed, Generation-Defining
Portrait of Teenagers on the Road
Available on Blu-ray and DVD December 27
SANTA MONICA, CA (November 1, 2016) – Revealing the provocative, rebellious and impulsive lifestyle of a band of millennial road warriors, 2016 Cannes Jury Prize Winner American Honey hits Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD on December 27 from Lionsgate. Theatrically released by A24, and written and directed by Academy Award® winner Andrea Arnold (Best Short Film, Live Action, Wasp, 2004), critics are calling American Honey “a raunchy, rapturous teenage dream” (Entertainment Weekly) and “a new classic” (The Atlantic). Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the steamy film takes a raw and intimate look at modern-day adolescence. American Honey stars newcomer and breakout star Sasha Lane in a “fierce” (The New York Times) performance alongside Riley Keough (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Shia LaBeouf (Transformers franchise).
An astonishing portrait of youth on the American fringe, American Honey is told through the eyes of a vivacious teenage rebel who joins a group of fellow misfits hustling and partying their way across the country. Bursting with electric, primal energy, American Honey is an immersive, exhilarating odyssey of heartbreaking beauty — a generation-defining film that celebrates the defiant resilience of youth in pursuit of the American Dream.
The Blu-ray release of American Honey bonus content includes an interview with stars Sasha Lane and Riley Keough. The American Honey Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
