“American Honey” Makes a Splash at Toronto International Film Festival
It was one of the hottest tickets during New York Fashion Week.
‘American Honey’ actresses Riley Keough and Sasha Lane certainly made a pretty VIP picture as they sat front row at the Coach 1941 Women’s Spring 2017 Show at pier 76, on Tuesday in New York City.
Coach’s creative director Stuart Vevers drew inspiration from American rock and roll this season, covering leather jackets, faded t-shirts and denim separates with fringe, studs, and even a print of Elvis Presley’s face. For authenticity’s sake, the legendary musician’s granddaughter, the actress Riley Keough, sat front row at the show, alongside musician Courtney Love and Winona Ryder.
In American Honey, a road trip movie now playing at the Toronto International Film Festival before it heads to a national release later this year, Riley Keough plays a Fagin-like character, tough-as-nails with a glare that could peel the paint off the walls.
She is Krystal, the leader of a travelling band of door-to-door magazine sellers who picks up new recruits along the way with one simple job interview question: “Do you got anyone who’s going to miss you?”
It is a bravura performance in a movie that, once and for all, proves she’s not just Elvis Presley’s granddaughter; she can really act.
Riley Keough attended the “American Honey” premiere during the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival at Ryerson Theatre on September 11, 2016 in Toronto, Canada.
Riley wore a CHANEL Fall 2016 black long sleeve sheer chiffon pleated & embellished cut-out ankle length dress. Visit Simply Riley Gallery for the first HQ images of a gorgeous Riley from the event.
‘Logan Lucky’ the latest Steven Soderbergh movie is in the making and the actors Channing Tatum and Riley Keough were spotted yesterday (2 Sept. 2016) in costumes on the set. This is not the duo’s first collaboration; they both were together in Soderbergh’s drama/comedy ‘Magic Mike’ back in 2012!
‘Logan Lucky’ revolves around two brothers who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina and is expected to be released on 13 October 2017 (USA).
The American actress and humanitarian Riley Keough shows her support a second time during a protest called ‘Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline’. Her fellow attendees during this protest are Susan Sarandon and Shailene Woodley along with hundreds of other protesters.
The pipeline would be used to transport crude oil from North Dakota into Illinois but would cross the Missouri River a mile away from the Standing Rock Reservation and threaten residents’ drinking water.
“We stood to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline all day… Through the rain. And hope Obama heard us. Please sign the petition if you haven’t,” Riley wrote on her Instagram.

Steven Soderbergh’s critically-acclaimed limited series “The Girlfriend Experience” has been greenlit for a second season, Starz President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht announced today at the Starz Television Critics Association (TCA) presentation at the Beverly Hilton.
Soderbergh returns as executive producer, along with Philip Fleishman, Lodge Kerrigan, Amy Seimetz, and Jeff Cuban. Andrew Fierberg and Adele Romanski will also executive produce. Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz will serve as showrunners, writers and directors for the 14-episode scripted anthology series.
Though the bad news for those who binged the first season: It will be without Riley Keough..
“The Girlfriend Experience” second season will focus on entirely new characters and plotlines.
Starz President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht announced Monday (1 August 2016) at TCA that the show has been greenlit for a second season with executive producer Steven Soderbergh and an entirely new cast of characters and plotlines. Make that two new sets. The 14-episode season will be divided into two seven-episode stories, USA TODAY has learned, which may or may not run back-to-back. One will be written and directed by producer Lodge Kerrigan, and the other by producer Amy Seimetz, who have “different sensibilities,” says Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz.
The first season, which follows Christine Reade, a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at a prestigious law firm as she enters the world of sex work, was loosely based on Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 movie starring Sasha Grey. And carried largely by Keough, who reveled in telling an atypical escort story.
“I liked the idea of showing a girl who doesn’t come from an oppressive background, who is intelligent and has a lot going for her, that ends up in sex work. Not the other story, which has been told before,” Keough told USA TODAY.
Paul Sparks was another highlight as the high-powered attorney, David Tellis, turned romantic interest.
