"The Florida Project" Review

"The Florida Project" earned rave reviews following its debut at the Cannes Film Festival in May. A24 quickly picked-up the film for distribution, with an eye on an awards season. Similar to last year's "Moonlight", which earned A24 its first Best Picture Oscar honor, "The Florida Project" is unique, experimental filmmaking. But while writer/director Sean Baker ("Tangerine") presents a fresh visual perspective, his story fails to shine.
