The Florida Project

Rated R 115 minutes 2017

Filmmaker Sean Baker, whose Tangerine had an indecent amount of fun with transgender Los Angeles streetwalkers, takes his humor-laden socially conscious outlook to a shabby welfare motel just outside the gates of Disney World in Orlando, for the story of a poor, hustling young woman (first-timer Bria Vinaite) and her extra-bubbly six-year-old daughter, played by child actress Brooklynn Prince. Little Miss Prince is an instant movie star. She, Vianite, and Willem Dafoe, as the motel’s kind-hearted manager, turn what might have been a downbeat portrait of grinding poverty into a life-affirming trip to the hard-scrabble side of life, complete with genuine laughs. Baker’s screenplay, written with Chris Bergoch, treats poverty as a cruel but wonderful game. The acting, and non-acting, are positively transcendent. One of the best films of 2017 (115 min., 2017, rated R)
