- Andrea Arnold
- Shia LaBeouf, Riley Keough, Sasha Lane
Arnold’s Polaroid view of the America Dream via a road trip of young, partying misfits selling magazine subscriptions across the Midwest features Riley Keough as the group’s entrepreneurial “mother” figure, newcomer Sasha Lane as the “new” girl, and Shia LaBeouf as the charismatic wild card of the group who meets cute with Lane in an Oklahoma Walmart. “[Director Andrea Arnold] wants to show us youth in revolt, and pleasure-seeking as a design for life. But she also takes us right into the unwashed armpit of flyover country and, in that most hopeless place, finds love.” (The Telegraph) The film is on numerous Best Movies of 2016 lists and has been nominated for multiple Independent Spirit Awards.
