LOS ANGELES, Oct 16 — A24 has released a new featurette for director Sean Baker’s The Florida Project that stars Willem Dafoe.
The film centres on six-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince), her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) and Bobby (Dafoe), the stern but kind-hearted manager at the budget motel they live in. As Moonee finds adventure in the community of cheap motels surrounding Disney World, Halley weathers hardship. The story shows the hard life as seen through the eyes of youthful adventure.
The synopsis of the film reads: “The story of a precocious six-year-old and her ragtag group of friends whose summer break is filled with childhood wonder, possibility and a sense of adventure, while the adults around them struggle with hard times.”
