In order to escape her dead-end life in Oklahoma, an 18-year-old named Star (Sasha Lane) joins a crew of young salespeople who are hawking magazine subscriptions across the Midwest. Along the way, she falls for a charismatic co-worker (Shia LaBeouf). Riley Keough co-stars. Written and directed by Andrea Arnold (Fish Tank).~Daniel Gelb
A presumably older teen girl with lots of problems decided to leave home, joins a band of troubled partying teens/ young adults on a run across state lines selling magazines subscriptions . Lots of conflict and trouble along the way...reckless behavior and nudity seemingly at every stop. She even gets money other ways..I'll leave that to you to see. Not a bad movie, decent performances, not a lot replay value. If your a collector like me, get it on sale otherwise rent it .
Movie starts off showing the life of a neglected teen and her siblings at home. She runs into a gentlemen who sells magazines for a living. She decides to join him and a van full of other kids who have run away from the same bad life at home. The movie shows how this group of kids travel the US selling "Magazines" to who ever will buy from them. It shows the ups/downs of traveling on the road and the dangers of situations that they put themselves in.
It takes a while to understand the point of this film but it's a beautiful and kind of haunting look at the youth of today. It's a ride not many will want to take but I'm glad I sure did. Sasha Lane is a great Up and coming actress and Shia proves he's a lot better as an actor than most believe him to be.
