It may not be science-or evidence-based, but we’d guess that The Florida Project has been our most-requested movie of the last few weeks. Now the wait is over to see The Florida Project at your favorite single-screen cinema! Moonee (in an amazing performance by Brooklynn Prince) is the life force that animates everyone around her: her scruffy group of friends, her teenage-but-trying mom, and the caretaker (Willem DaFoe) of the shabby Magic Castle motel where she lives, on the outskirts of Disney World. Without judgement, filmmaker Sean Baker (Tangerine) celebrates her freedom and risk-taking spirit, at the same time he sees the dangers lying in wait for kids scrambling to adulthood without the resources they need. 105 min.
“there’s a greatness in it…this is an original piece of work, and no one who sees it will forget it” Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle.
