Subject: THE FLORIDA PROJECT (no spoilers)
Writer-director Sean Baker (TANGERINE) turns his disquisitive eye on the
matchstick sub-culture growing in the economic crevices of Orlando's
Disney World. Willem DaFoe heads the adult cast, but the stars are a
few very young kids whose performances approach Cinema Verite. (The
DVD's making-of is a particularly engaging one.) THE FLORIDA PROJECT
is, to be sure, an art-house movie, with an art-house movie's ambiance
and structure. It's nevertheless gripping -- and well recommended.
