The Florida Project

Over the course of a single summer, an imaginative, rambuctious 6-year-old girl named Moonee (tiny star Brooklynn Prince) gets in and out of trouble while living in a cheap motel in the shadow of Disneyland. While her tattoo-sporting single mom (Bria Vinaite) struggles to escape from grinding poverty, little Moonee spends time with the motel's kind-hearted manager (Willem Dafoe) and a ragtag collection of latchkey kids. There's not a lot, storywise, to this minimalist indie. But it's got heart and moxie and comes to us from writer-director Sean Baker, whose last film (Tangerine) was shot entirely on an iPhone. 111 minutes R.
