First Trailer: “The Florida Project”

Celebrated “Tangerine” director Sean Baker returns with the new drama “The Florida Project” which scored raves back in May at the Cannes Film Festival. Today, the film’s first trailer and poster arrives.

‘Florida’ follows precocious 6-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince) and her rag-tag group of close friends whose summer break is filled with childhood wonder, possibility and a sense of adventure, while their parents and the adults around them struggle with hard times living in the rougher areas around Orlando’s Disney World.

Dafoe plays the manager of the motel in which Moonee and the crew live. Bria Vinaite, Valeria Cotto, Christopher Rivera and Caleb Landry Jones also star and, unlike “Tangerine,” the film was shot in 35mm. “The Florida Project” opens on October 6th.
