When Sydney Sweeney gained acclaim for her role in Euphoria, fans were worried that the industry would typecast the actress as a dumb blonde. However, Sweeney has proven that she is a beauty with brains with her choice of projects. The actress is turning the tides one after another with each out-of-the-box role that she takes on. One of the most exciting projects that have her name on it alongside that of stars like Halsey, Eric Dane, Paul Walter Hauser, and many more is the wild-esque Americana.
Americana gained a lot of attention soon after its announcement, not only because of the ensemble cast, but because it takes from real artifacts of history. The movie has found the perfect date and place for its world premiere this summer.

Americana, earlier set to release as National Anthem, is directed by Tony Tost. He is predominantly a poet and is marking his first steps into the industry as a director with an innovative project like Americana. The flick in contrast to the glittering stars that it features is actually Tost’s take on modern rural America set in the West. Americana will premiere at the SXSW Film & TV Festival in the Narrative Spotlight section on the 17th of March at Paramount Theatre, as reported by Deadline.
