Altitude Film Distribution have released the first UK trailer and poster for The Florida Project, the break-out film of 2017 that first played at the Cannes Film Festival back in May. It recently had its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival.
The film has been set for a 10th November 2017 release date in the UK and Ireland, by distributor Altitude.
Directed by Sean Baker, and co-written with Chris Bergoch, The Florida Project is Baker’s follow up to his 2015 award winning feature Tangerine, which he also co-wrote with Bergoch. The Florida Project stars Willem Dafoe (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Murder on the Orient Express) and features standout performances from newcomers Bria Vinaite, Brooklynn Prince and Valeria Cotto.
The Florida Project tells the story of Moonee (Brookynn Prince), a precocious six-year- old and her ragtag group of friends. The children’s summer break is filled with wonder, mischief and adventure while the adults around them struggle with hard times.
The story takes place just outside of Orlando, the vacation capital of the world and home to “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” Along the main highway that runs through the land of theme parks and resorts, budget motels that once attracted tourists by exploiting the Disney mystique, now house homeless families.
Moonee and her twenty-two year old mother, Halley (Bria Vinaite), live at one such establishment — The Magic Castle Motel. The closest thing Moonee has to a father is Bobby (Willem Dafoe), the motel’s manager, a guarded and diligent man who is taunted by the children’s antics. Halley has lost her job and a new girl the same age as Moonee has moved in at the motel next door – it’s going to be an eventful summer.
June Pictures presents A Cre Film & Freestyle Pictures Company Production. Produced by Sean Baker, Chris Bergoch, Kevin Chinoy, Andrew Duncan, Alex Saks, Francesca Silvestri, Shih-Ching Tsou and executive produced by Darren Dean.
