    One of my most anticipated for the fall. Loved Tangerine and really liked the performances in Starlet, but this sounds like it's a huge leap forward from the director.

    Being from here I am dying to see this and I know it is playing this weekend at our local art theater but I hope it stays for at least one more because I'm not sure if I'll find time.

    A lot of tourists probably aren't even that familiar with that part of the Orlando area. It is so grungy compared to the resorts and parks people stay at.

    Exactly. If I remember correctly a report a couple years ago said Kissimmee was one of the worst cities to live in FL because of the housing situation and crime ridden motels. Then you go a little further down the same road and you have the most picturesque towns with Celebration. Florida is a weird place.

    this is really excellent

    sean baker is such an empathetic filmmaker it never feels like he's portraying his characters in a "look how messed up their lives are" exploitative manner.

    entire cast is very strong, of course gotta give shouts to a great latter day performance from Dafoe

    I just saw this and I think it was one of my favourite films of the year. I found it extremely powerful.

    Really loved the ending as well
    It took me a moment - I was like "Huh, weird they've changed the camera and I'm not sure what to make of them going to Disney...like how will they even get in?".... but then as the credits rolled I was sitting there thinking about the whole movie and I realised that is was very clearly just a fantasy sequence and it hit me hard haha

    I have recently restarted writing film reviews for my blog so please read more detailed thoughts here: Review: The Florida Project

    Just a few months ago James Gray, who has had a longer and more acclaimed career than Baker, said that he struggles financially due to focusing on low-budget work. It is no wonder why they are looking to make Jurassic Park 7 or Thor 4 whenever the studios call; they can pay them less than a major action director but it is still too much to pass up for these people trying to support their family.

    I've thought about the ending a lot, and i get exactly what they are trying to convey and that there's the high likelihood that it wasn't actually happening, but I honestly think I might hate it. I really enjoyed this overall though, despite a little bit of drag towards the end. The main girl is obviously incredible.

    IMO, zero chance that wasn’t just a “fairytale ending” and actually happened.

    Regardless of whether of not it did or did not happen, my issue lies in the way it was handled. The cheesy music, the garbage camerawork...it felt like a student film. Even if both those things were intentional, I did not like it at all. I felt it was ending on a high note because for the first time we get to see Moonee as a child and I wanted to bask in that a little longer.
