“... a film with an abundance of heart ...” Film Ireland

Six-year-old Moonie (Brooklynn Prince) lives with her mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) in a Florida motel. Along with her friends, Moonie spends the summer exploring the urban wilderness and getting into every sort of mischief. Halley, meanwhile, desperately tries to make ends meet. Kind but stern manager Bobby (Willem Dafoe) tries to keep his patience as rent goes unpaid and the hyperactive kids run wild.

In his follow-up to the acclaimed Tangerine, director Sean Baker cements his reputation as one of the great chroniclers of forgotten America. The Florida Project is a deeply sympathetic portrait of one small, neglected community. It’s the wildly energetic kids who really allow this remarkable film to soar, however - few films about childhood have ever felt this authentic.
