Interview with ‘American Honey’ stars Sasha Lane and Riley Keough

Sasha Lane and Riley Keough

At the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, I sat down with stars Sasha Lane and Riley Keough to talk about American Honey, the new film from director Andrea Arnold which opened in select theatres this weekend.

Lane plays Star, a young girl who leaves her dead-end life behind to travel across America with a group of teenagers as they sell magazines door-to-door from one suburb to the next. Star falls hard for Jake, played by Shia LaBeouf, but she doesn’t count on how much he is wrapped around the little finger of the groups leader, Krystal, played by Keough, or the journey that is ahead of her.

In the interview the stars talk about making the film, the intensity of the production, and their favorite scenes.

American Honey is playing now in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, and expands to Halifax, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Victoria, Quebec City on October 21, followed by Ottawa on October 28.
