The Florida Project


This is a great film; and one that is very hard to watch. It arouses many mixed emotions: from love, to dislike almost to the point of disgust; from admiration to beautiful colors of the film to the irritation caused by the same genre of colors in the little motel room of miseries that the films two main characters share. Only thing I didn't like about the film is the ending. I expected the film to be more political, as the root of all the disasters portrayed in the film could be tracked down to the grand social injustice problem, and at times, it gives us that angry feeling, like when the kid and her mum gives the finger to the helicopters carrying unnamed rich people. But in the end, it offers us an escape that goes through Disneyland, a route that is acceptable for a kid maybe, but one that is not admirable.
