The Florida Project

The Florida Project ★★★★★

Another NYU success story (Writer/Director Sean Baker). A heartfelt, heartbreaking, and heartwarming tale about a young, rebellious girl living with her down-on-her-luck, poor mother in a motel in the shadow of disney world. The story's main characters remind me of that and those of Fish Tank and Wasp by Andrea Arnold. The film boasts a nearly impeccable performance by Willem Dafoe and the jaw-droppingly powerful performance by Brooklynn Prince, who plays Moonee, the little girl. Shot on gorgeous Kodak film stock, The Florida Project will stay with you--especially after it's ending.
