Synopsis

Set amongst families living on the poverty line in a series of budget motels in Orlando, THE FLORIDA PROJECT follows the summer adventures of two 6-year-old girls, Moonee and Jancey. Living in neighbouring motels, Moonee and Jancey, and their friends Scooty and Dickey run amok unsupervised, frequently getting under the feet of Bobby, the tough-but-tender manager of the Magic Castle Motel, where Moonee lives with her explosive 22-year-old mother Halley. Inspired by the Hal Roach Our Gang films of the 1920s and ’30s, the perils and pleasures of childhood have never felt so vivid or alive.
