“THE FLORIDA PROJECT is sublime: a blast of life, of celebratory highs and lamentable lows, on the outer economic edges of the Sunshine State.” – A.A. Dowd, AV Club
As the 2017 winds down, we take a chance to revisit one of the years best, and most talked about, films. THE FLORIDA PROJECT has appeared on countless year-end best-of lists and will surely be a leading contender for major awards. Come see it again – or for the first time – with us.
The newest film from Sean Baker (TANGERINE) tells the story of a precocious six year-old and her ragtag group of friends whose summer break is filled with childhood wonder, possibility, and a sense of adventure while the adults around them struggle with hard times.
Featuring breakthrough performances from newcomer Bria Vinaite and young Brooklynn Prince as the mother and daughter, with a truly masterful turn by Willem Dafoe as the manager of the seedy rundown motel that they call home.
