The Florida Project (2017)

My affinity for this movie is starting to border on obsession. It’s main purpose—besides superb acting and superior cinematography—is to get into your heart and burrow down deep where it can change your perspective of a complex subject that is at worst completely unknown, or at best unfairly judged then flippantly dismissed. Any film that can portray the complex realities of systemic poverty and not flinch at the failings of marginalized people forced to live in a motel while retaining their dignity as Human Beings deserves more attention than it will get. It ain’t pretty but somehow it’s still beautiful.
