Our take

Has there recently been a U.S. indie that renders a child’s eye-view as other-worldly as The Florida Project? In his radiant follow-up to Tangerine, director Sean Baker dilutes the unsettled grain of life at the margins with the loud, untainted energy of infancy. A neorealist fable for the ages!
