Six-year-old Moonee lives in a rundown motel in Florida near Disney World. Her young mother does what she can to provide the essentials but Moonee and her friends are kids at risk. Despite this, Moonee and her pals find exuberant joy in their freedom. Bobby, the motels manager, looks out for them, intervening when things threaten to get dangerous. No magic can make the pain of their reality disappear, but this film manages both to cast a spell and tell the truth.
Post-film discussion with local screenwriter and SUNY Purchase film school faculty, J.D. Zeik.
Oscar nominee: Willem Dafoe, Best Supporting Actor
New York Film Critics Winner: Best Director, Sean Baker
Challenging the invisibility of a whole segment of the American underclass, The Florida Project shines a bright shaft of happy, hot summer sun on The Magic Castle and finds there no magic, but hidden treasure. Jessica Kiang, Playlist
