This Florida project is an American movie directed by Sean Baker. Set in a Florida motel, it follows the life of a single mother Halley who is struggling to meet ends meet and her bubbly, fun loving daughter Mooney. It portrays the stark economic contrast between the poor suburbs of Florida and the exorbitant Disney World. It focuses on themes about struggles of parenthood and loss of childlike innocence.
The mother daughter duo’s mundane day to day is portrayed while they try to make the best out of every moment in life. We see the evolution of Mooney’s character from a brat to an empathetic child who loves her mother unconditionally. It is a tragic yet heartwarming tale, that will have you giggling with joy one moment and crying the next moment. This is a must watch for its realistic portrayal of poverty, dreamy cinematography and lost childhood
