Saturday night, Sharon and I watched The Florida Project as a HD rental on the AppleTv. This is still part of our continuing effort to see all of this year's Oscar nominated films.
The Florida Project was chosen by both the National Board of Review and American Film Institute as one of the top 10 films of the year. William Dafoe earned Best Supporting Actor nominations at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and BAFTA Awards for his role in the film.
The plot follows a six-year-old girl living with her rebellious mother in a motel in Kissimmee, Florida (outside Orlando) as they try to stay out of trouble and make ends meet. The title is derived from the early name for Walt Disney World, located near the setting of the film.
When the movie ended, Sharon said "that was stupid." I didn't enjoy the movie and don't recommend it.
