Shia LaBeouf Accepts Plea Deal Regarding Georgia Arrest, Avoids Jail

Shia LaBeouf

LaBeouf appeared in Chatham County Courthouse in Georgia regarding his drunken, foul-mouthed arrest back in July.

Shia LaBeouf has been sentenced to a year’s probation under the threat of prison, and ordered to attend anger management classes, having appeared in court regarding his arrest for public drunkenness in Georgia earlier this year.

The oft-troubled 31 year old American Honey actor was arrested in Savannah, Georgia back in July this year, after he refused to obey a police officer’s order for him to leave a local market at 4:00am, apparently flying into a foul-mouthed rage after somebody refused him a cigarette.

Several videos went viral of the arrest, in which LaBeouf drops several swear words and calls a white officer “racist” for “arresting a fellow white man”.

Borg/McEnroe Review

Very Good

Skilfully made by Swedish filmmaker Janus Metz (the award-winning Armadillo), this film is essentially a biopic about tennis icon Bjorn Borg that centres on his fascinating rivalry with John McEnroe. Indeed, in Scandinavia, the film is simply titled Borg. But the script has a complexity to it that finds clever parallels between two players who seem on the surface to be opposites. And it has things to say that will resonate with audiences who know nothing about tennis history.

It's set around the 1980 Wimbledon final, an epic match that captured the world's attention as it pitted the ice-cool four-time champion Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) against the volcanically tempered upstart McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf, in a nifty bit of casting). While it felt like a battle between the old guard and a young upstart, there were actually only three years between 24-year-old Borg and 21-year-old McEnroe. But while Borg was intensely focussed, meeting with his manager Lennart (Stellan Skarsgard) and keeping his fiancee (Tuva Novotny) at arm's length, McEnroe was partying with his friends, fellow players Peter Fleming (Scott Arthur) and Vitas Garulitis (Robert Emms), at least until time came to meet them on court.

The script digs occasionally into McEnroe's childhood, but spends considerably more time with Borg over the years (played as a youngster by Leo Borg, Bjorn's son, and as a teen by Marcus Mossberg). Intriguingly, when he was younger Borg was a lot more like McEnroe, with a short temper that erupts into epic tantrums, and watching him he learn to suppress them is fascinating. In the present day, Gudnason and LaBeouf capture the characters perfectly both on-court and off, finding big contrasts and more subtle similarities. And both Novotny and Skarsgard have strong scenes of their own, creating real-life people out of what could have been simplistic side roles.

American Honey Review

OK

British filmmaker Andrea Arnold follows her acclaimed arthouse hits Fish Tank and Wuthering Heights with a road trip across the American West. It's stunningly photographed by Robbie Ryan with a vivid sense of light, skin and expansive landscapes. And it's acted with an offhanded honesty by its young cast. But there's no real plot to speak of, and as the film unfolds over nearly three hours, it becomes naggingly clear that there isn't much of a point.

It centres on Star (Sasha Lane), an 18-year-old from Texas who is fed up with her miserable life caring for her younger siblings while her mother parties in local bars and her boyfriend acts like a caveman. So she runs off and joins the present-day equivalent of the circus: a travelling group of hard-partying teens selling magazines door-to-door. Their jaded leader Krystal (Riley Keough) doesn't care about the alcohol, sex and drugs as long as she's making money. And as Star settles in, she develops a crush on Jake (Shia LaBeouf), the guy training her on the job. As they move from town to town, Star has a series of small adventures that turn nasty, and could go much worse at any moment.

This potential danger is the only real tension in the film, although Star is oblivious to the fact that she continually puts herself in perilous situations. She learns nothing through all of these experiences, which is very frustrating for a movie audience to watch. This is a very simple young woman whose only dream is to get a trailer of her own and fill it with babies. Like all of these kids, she is living for the moment without any sense of responsibility or direction. This is a knowing comment on a generation raised in the longest recession in human history, but it leaves the movie feeling like it's spinning its wheels.

Shia Labeouf Got 12 Tattoos While Making American Honey

By Rich Cline in Movies / TV / Theatre on 30 September 2016

Shia LaBeouf

Over the past five years, Shia LaBeouf has gone from promising young actor to unemployable disaster and back again.

His off-screen antics very nearly put an end to his career, as filmmakers didn't want him on their sets. He's been arrested multiple times for alcohol-fuelled displays, fired from a Broadway play and accused of plagiarism in his work. So he decided to clean up his act. Now 30 and sober, he feels like he's getting back on track.

Shia LeBeouf in American Honey

His first big move is to star in Andrea Arnold's new movie American Honey, which took Cannes by storm this year. While making the film, Arnold deliberately refused to give LaBeouf anything more than a page of dialogue each morning as they shot the movie on the road over seven weeks.
