Sean Baker’s Florida-set drama takes place over one summer in which a young mother struggles to provide for her daughter while staying at a motel near Disney World. Taking a child’s-eye view at the fringes of the tourist resort, Baker shows us a world we think we know before turning it on its head. Mixing amateur casting with professionals like William Dafoe, the Florida Project debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017 and has picked up an Oscar nomination.
