"Not a film I’d be in any rush to watch (especially with it being 2.5 hours long, 😥 with a somewhat abrupt & bittersweet ending), but, WOW, the acting by Brooklyn Prince… (more on that below) This is not your typical, slick, fast-paced Hollywood drama; it’s an #indie (A24) slice-of-life type film where there’s no plot, really, but the subject matter deals with #poverty (living in it, growing up in it), so it makes ya appreciate what ya got — I liked the parts that focused on the adventures & wonder of #childhood (The child actors in this really are precious). ▪️The absolute stand-out star of this film is the precocious six-year-old little girl — played by #award_winning actress Brooklynn Prince, along with veteran actor Willem Dafoe — or as someone in their review on here referred to him as “Willem Dafriend,” which is clever because that sums up his character’s personality in this flick. ▪️BTW, If I still subscribed to 🍏AppleTV+, I’d definitely check out Brooklynn Prince who currently stars alongside other notable actors in a highly-rated crime-drama-mystery TV-series entitled HOME BEFORE DARK — just because I’m curious to see her act in other roles, especially now that she is a bit older."
"THE FRAMING. THE COLORS. The attention to detail is incredible. Sean Baker's slice of life films have a way of allowing you to connect with characters and experiences that you have no personal connection with. The Florida Project follows a group of 3 kids creating their own innocent adventure amidst a chaotic environment in the struggling neighborhoods outside of Disney World. Sean Baker's wide shots and chromatic choices compliment each other perfectly. Colors were dripping off the screen!"
