Review: The Florida Project

So many contradictions ... such an engaging and enjoyable movie.

Told mainly through the eyes of a young child, this story gives a different view of America. One that it so far away from the American dream. Beautifully, shot -- the brilliant colours contrast the bleakness of the situtation, and the joy the mother has for her daughter. So many contradictions.

The children, and in particular the 'lead child' give remarkable performances; so very natural and powerful. She certainly has a pair of lungs on her. It's hard to believe it is the first time for all of the cast (except of course, for Willem Dafoe).

This is one of the best films of the year for me.
