Six-year-old Moonee lives in the shadows outside Disney World with her unconventional family in this heartwarming look at childhood innocence.
Disney World may be among the happiest places on Earth, but that doesn't necessarily extend to the areas of the city that lie just outside its borders. In one of these neighborhoods, six-year-old Moonee (newcomer Brooklynn Prince) plays with her friends, gets into mischief, and takes everything the "adults" do in stride - never realizing that their lives aren't as sugarcoated and carefree as she perceives them to be. A deep and emotional look at facades - both on the world around us, and on our own faces - and how it really might be a lot simpler to be happy than we think.
Sean Baker's follow-up to the 2015 breakthrough film TANGERINE, THE FLORIDA PROJECT sets him apart, illustrating his ability to highlight complex topics with stunning cinematography and chemistry.
