With what seems to be a compassionate tale from A24, The Florida Project, starring Willem Dafoe, received its first trailer and poster.
It’s no secret that Dafoe is a class-act and can act his socks off, so that combined with A24’s well-received track record makes for a promising film from director Sean Baker.
The trailer’s vibe is one of childhood ambition and emotion. Sure, this is probably gonna make you all emotional and gooey inside, but there’s nothing wrong with an escape from the likes of It Comes at Night and Menashe.
Here’s the official summary:
Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows 6-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince) and her rebellious mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) over the course of a single summer. The two live week to week at “The Magic Castle,” a budget motel managed by Bobby (Dafoe), whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion.
The Florida Project debuts in North America on Oct. 6, 2017.
