The Florida Project (2017)

Viewing Dec '18 ///

Working with children is notoriously hard in the film industry, something that Sean Baker chose not to listen to, and thank the bloody stars he didn’t. One can imagine many other iterations of the story told from the mother’s perspective to avoid the heavy filming of the child or the Hollywood version where Dafoe’s character, Bobby, swoops in at the end and takes the kid on as his own. Baker has delivered an amazingly real film that really takes a snapshot of Bobby’s life as a budget hotel manager, captured through the eyes of a child, centring on one so-called-family drama.
