Double Feature with CERTAIN WOMEN

(2016) dir Andrea Arnold w/Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf [163 min; DCP]
Star (Lane), a teenage girl from a troubled home, runs away with a traveling sales crew that sells magazine subscriptions door to door across the American Midwest. Finding her feet in this gang of teenagers, one of whom is Jake (LaBeouf), she soon gets into the group’s lifestyle of hard partying, law bending, and young love.

“Optimistic and just plain beautiful…a film for this generation.” — Twitch

“Lane, whom Arnold discovered lounging on a Miami beach, recalls Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone, balancing an inherent toughness with the fragility of girlhood.” – Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader

“An unflinching portrait of middle America, a love letter to the open road and a dynamic newcomer in Sasha Lane.” – Sara Stewart, New York Post

“Yes, it depicts teenagers doing things the grown-ups would rather not admit they actually do, but it does so with a poetic curiosity and a sense of what it’s like to be young, poor, and rootless – both future-less and free.” – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
