WINNER: BEST DIRECTOR & BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR (Willem Dafoe)

–New York Film Critics Circle

One of year’s best films. Sean Baker’s empathy for the underclass helped make his drama Tangerine an indie hit two years ago. This is a tale of children growing up poor but full of wonder in the rainbow-hued motel-strip shadow of Orlando’s Disney World. Brooklynn Prince plays the irrepressible Moonee, the 6-year-old daughter of grifter Halley (Bria Vinaite), a rebellious woman but devoted mom.

Moonee and her pals are undaunted by poverty. They also love mischief of all kinds.

Moonee’s 22-year-old mom has to resort to adult stratagems to pay the rent.

Willem Dafoe downshifts into regular-guy mode with abundant grace — and serious Best Supporting Actor prospects — as Bobby, a motel manager with a heart.

Alexis Zabe’s rapturous cinematography reminds us that magic is where you find it. You don’t need a golden ticket to Mickey’s kingdom. --Toronto Star"One of the finest films of 2017." Boston Globe"One of the most honest portraits of childhood you'll ever see." Detroit NewsCast Willem Dafoe, Bria Vinaite, Brooklynn Prince
