A24 is one of our fave indie movie houses, and we follow them as much as we can. And we love introspective art films that try to un-define and reflect upon social subjects that we, in our busy lives, don’t get to experience.
THE FLORIDA PROJECT is one of those experiences that we love.
The film stars Willem Dafoe, Brooklynn Prince, Valeria Cotto and Bria Vinaite. It tells of a tale in time- of finding that sliver of hope in an externally desperate and misunderstood predicament.
All through the chaos, there’s childhood, and the finding of one’s self – through one’s salvation – through that basic kindness of youth – whether child or adult.
We are fans of Willem Dafoe and it’s a delight to see him in this kind of setting. He brings humanity where the character doesn’t need to, but just does. The rest of the cast is delightful and charming – wanting us to cheer for the characters.
Hope you can find time to seek this film out.
The film is at select theaters throughout the US. Check the time here.
