Imaginem um grande hotel roxo na Flórida, chamado Magic Kingdom. Nele vive uma princesa de seis anos chamada Moonee (Brooklynn Prince), filha da jovem rainha Halley (Bria Vinaite) com lindos desenhos tatuados na pele e que para sobreviver com sua filha na ensolarada Flórida, terra do Mickey, revende perfumes falsos a baixo custo para os visitantes da grande terra da magia, onde “os seus sonhos podem se tornar realidade se tiver coragem de perseguí-los”, grande slogan do dono de tudo, o Sr. Walt. Ainda neste hotel existe um grande mágico, o Bobby (Willem Dafoe), que possui todas as chaves dos quartos e cuida de todos que por ali passam ou vivem, sem julgá-los, mas notá-los em sua real existência. Eis então o filme de Sean Baker (mesmo diretor do magnífico Tangerine), roteirizado pelo próprio e por Chris Bergoch, intitulado The Florida Project. Baker, assim como seu filme anterior, lança as suas lentes para o lado que ninguém quer ver, ainda mais na terra do Mickey. Projeta coloridamente a vida da pequena Moonee neste pequeno hotel, que não possui nada de luxuoso se comparado aos hotéis que recebem turistas do mundo inteiro para se divertirem com as princesas, os príncipes e os animais fofos que invadiram o imaginário de crianças pelo globo. Brooklynn Prince, com apenas seis anos, é uma imensidão humana e nos resgata a inocência de mundo que infelizmente perdemos todos e que nos corrói ao percebermos que Moonee, ao longo do filme, também pode perder, pois a vida é inevitável quando vivida sobre o mundo de fato real. Baker ainda nos presenteia com as atuações de Dafoe e da novata Vinaite. Enquanto Dafoe trabalha no singelo, Vinaite é um estrondo e a equalização dos dois em cena proporciona uma sequência das mais incríveis e lindas no filme. The Florida Project está na corrida do Oscar e estreia no Brasil dia 1 de março. #thefloridaproject #seanbaker #chrisbergoch #willemdafoe #brooklynnprince #briavinaite #oscar2018 #cinema #movies #film #art

Moonee: [to tourist at ice-cream stand] Excuse me. Could you give us some change, please? The doctor said we have asthma and we have to eat ice-cream right away. @thefloridaproject #seanbaker #chrisbergoch #thefloridaproject #amazingfilm #fresh #beautiful #moving #newyearsday2018🎉 #moviescreening ❤️

‘The Florida Project’ offers a raw look at impecunious families in the United States, while being both exuberant and heartbreaking at the same time. This film, directed by Sean Baker, has received immense critical acclaim for obvious reasons. Baker presents a story centring around six-year-old Moonee and her life living in a motel with her destitute and rebellious mother. Instead of focusing on a plot, Baker prefers to simply showcase day-to-day incidents of the characters around the motel, which is primarily what the first two-thirds of the film is about. In doing this, the film almost feels like a documentary of underprivileged individuals and can feel slow at some points. However, what separates this film from being a bleak documentary, is the fact that it is so abundantly full of life and colours. Brooklynn Prince, who plays Moonee, is undoubtedly riveting. At such a young age, this actress is able to pull off a phenomenal performance and perfectly plays a high-spirited girl living in poverty. The realism of Prince’s acting, alongside her co-stars, truly brings this film to life. Willem Dafoe and Bria Vinaite are also outstanding in this film, particularly considering the latter had no acting experience prior to filming and was able to do so well. This film is also dazzling, with beautiful direction and cinematography. Full of vibrant colours and striking shots of Florida, mostly shot on 35mm, makes this film a visual masterpiece. The final scene of the film, surprisingly shot on an iPhone, is certainly a bold and risky move, but did not take away the heart of the story and as the credits rolled, one knows that they just watched a phenomenal film. In summary, ‘The Florida Project’ is certainly a standout film in 2017 with it’s moving (and confronting) subject, phenomenal acting and beautiful visuals. Although one may not want to watch this twice, due to it’s underlying dark themes, it is certainly worth watching for it’s bountiful amounts of energy and life. Rating: 4/5
