Six-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince) and her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) live week to week at “The Magic Castle,” a budget motel managed by Bobby (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 ragtag 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 toil and sacrifice of Halley, who is forced to explore increasingly dangerous possibilities in order to provide for her daughter.
From Sean Baker, who brought us 2015’s well-reviewed (and shot on an iPhone!) Tangerine, The Florida Project is further proof of the director’s stature as one of America’s best independent film voices.
Anthony Lane of the New Yorker writes that Baker “has taken an unregarded thread of American life, from the fraying edge of the land, and spun something rousing, raucous, and sad. Innocence is not utterly lost, but its bright-purple shine has gone.” Ty Burr of the Boston Globe says that “In nerve guts, heart, and mind [The Florida Project] is one of the finest films of 2017.”

A young man (Douglas Booth) journeys through France to investigate the death of painter Vincent Van Gogh (Robert Gulaczyk). He encounters a variety of people along the way, including the doctor (Jerome Flynn) who treated Van Gough in his last days and the doctor’s mysterious daughter (Saoirse Ronan). Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman directed this historical drama, which is the first animated feature painted entirely in oil. Eleanor Tomlinson co-stars. ~ Ben Schultz, Rovi
Each of the film’s 65,000 frames is a oil painting on canvas, using the same technique as Van Gough, created by a team of 115 painters. The film premiered at the 2017 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
