The Florida Project
USA, 2017 | Length: 111min | FSK: 12 | Director: Sean Baker Cast: Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince, Valeria Cotto

Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, this compelling drama follows six-year-old Moonee (Prince) and her rebellious mother Halley (Vinaite) over the course of a single summer. The two live week to week at a budget motel managed by Bobby (Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion. Compassionately told through the eyes of a child, this captivating drama is a spellbinding and transformative portrait of contemporary lives lived in the margins that are otherwise too easily forgotten. With a riveting performance of Prince as the 6-year-old Mooney and one of the career-best performances of Dafoe, this tender, tragic and joyous tale declares, boldly and proudly, that anywhere can be a Magic Kingdom - it just depends on how you see it.
