THE FLORIDA PROJECT
Jan 26 - 29, 5:30 & 8:00
Inspired by the antics of The Little Rascals, director Sean Baker (Tangerine) innovatively brings depression era hi-jinks into the post-recession world in his powerful, empathetic and unsentimental new film. Set at a seedy hotel just outside the influence of Orlando’s Disney World, a precocious child and two friends spend an innocent summer having wild adventures, while their troubled parents struggle to survive in these hard times. Willem Dafoe stars as the hotel’s manager and the film’s moral center, acting as a father figure despite his annoyance at the kids’ mischief-making.
