Golden Globe nominee: Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture - Willem Dafoe


From Director Sean Baker (TANGERINE) comes Cannes Film Festival official selection THE FLORIDA PROJECT, which tells the story of precocious six year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince), who lives with her unemployed single mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) in an extended-stay motel on the outskirts of Disney World. Deemed "brilliant, buoyant and ultimately heart-wrenching" by New York Magazine, the film delves into impoverished America through the eyes of Moonee and her friends, whose summer break is filled with childhood wonder and possibility, while the adults around them struggle to make ends meet.
