Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good The Florida Project is the kind of small, insightful, and fascinating film that will be beloved by art house audiences...and may generate some Oscar buzz. Not a coming-of-age story but one about the loss of innocence, this is one of the most honest films about young childhood to reach theaters in a several years.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent It is one of those films that defies its plot description through its execution. It is a film of small notes that combine to form something major, the kind of movie that sneaks up on you and sticks with you. achieves much of its brilliance through specificity.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good ...a film that's as hilarious and heartbreaking as it is unclassifiable. of the best and most provocative films ever made about childhood... ...blending The Little Rascals with his own brand of indie neo-realism, cuts a direct path to the heart.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Very Good It invests the minutia of the down-and-out lives inside a budget motel with a bittersweet energy and significance.

This movie did not open in a city where we collect opinions.

Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows six-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince in a stunning breakout turn) and her rag-tag gang of friends. Moonee and her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite, another major discovery) live week to week at "The Magic Castle," a budget motel managed by Bobby (a career-best Willem Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion.

Despite her harsh surroundings, the precocious and ebullient Moonee has no trouble making each day a celebration of life, her endless afternoons overflowing with mischief and grand adventure as she and her playmates-including Jancey, a new arrival to the area who quickly becomes Moonee's best friend-fearlessly explore the utterly unique world into which they've been thrown. Unbeknownst to Moonee, however, her delicate fantasy is supported by the struggle and sacrifice of Halley, who is forced to explore increasingly dangerous possibilities in order to provide for her daughter.
