Directed by Sean Baker

Starring Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince, and Valerie Cotto

Set over one summer, the film follows precocious 6-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Disney World.



"Baker has imbued this whole terrific movie with a child's sense of discovery - the sort that can turn a decrepit, pastel corner of Orlando into a vibrant cinematic playground."--Bob Mondello, NPR

"It is because Baker views the world without blinders that the moments of lyricism in The Florida Project are so piercing. When a rainbow shows up in the sky, it's not just a rainbow; it's a benediction."--Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

"Dafoe's sensitive performance anchors the movie's slippery adult world, and Baker builds a cinematic mood beautifully; the strip malls and swampland and buzzing cicadas on screen feel as real and tactile as the theater seat beneath you."--Leah Greenblatt, Christian Science Monitor


WON--Truly Moving Picture Award, Heartland Film 2017
