Film: The Florida Project at the IFI (audio described and captioned screening)

14 Nov 2017 (Past)

Irish Film Institute

Brimming with rambunctious energy, Moonee spends a seemingly carefree summer with her friends, under the watchful eye of the ever-patient Bobby, blissfully unaware of her mother’s growing financial concerns and drift towards petty crime.

Moonee (Brooklynn Prince), the six-year-old protagonist of Sean Baker’s follow-up to 2015’s ‘Tangerine’, lives with her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) on the margins of Florida society in a low-rent motel managed by Bobby (Willem Dafoe).

We experience this harsh environment through the optimistic and joyful eyes of a youngster, yet Baker invites us to see through the veneer of endless fun and discern just how precarious Moonee’s situation is. Moving, joyful and brilliantly performed, ‘The Florida Project’ is an unqualified success.

OC screenings: Tuesday 14th (13.10) and Thursday 16th (20.20)
