“A shot of pure cinematic joy” – Little White Lies

"Willem Dafoe... gives one of the best performances of his career" - The Guardian.

"★★★★★" - The Telegraph


Director Sean Baker made a huge splash in 2015 with the ‘shot-on-an-i Phone’ film Tangerine, and his new film follows up on that gem. While Tangerine was set on the streets of LA, The Florida Project crosses over to the East coast.

Set in the shadows of the theme parks of Orlando, this film follows the inhabitants of a motel block and their everyday battle to live, ride and survive in Disney territory. Single mum Halley is struggling to raise her wisecracking child Moonee while Willem Dafoe is brilliant as the harried motel manager Bobby whose life seems to consist of keeping his rowdy tenants in check. A fantastic portrait of working class America.
