[FILM] The Florida Project | Sean Baker (2018)
One of my absolute favourites - I love every moment this glorious film. Director Sean Baker takes us into the tiny world of a small motel on the outskirts of Disneyland Florida and the long term occupants and staff who reside there.
Centred around the trials and tribulations of young single mum, Halley, and her bundle of energy daughter, Moonee, as they attempt to make it through Moonee’s summer holidays on a shoestring budget. The mother-daughter combo deliver remarkable, effervescent performances throughout.
It’s a film is so bursting full of joyous moments and beautiful cinematography whilst never skirting the harsh realities faced by those who are suffering in financial & social poverty.
