The Florida Project - 0.5/5

What a bore! You may think you need to like this film, but you don't. The rave reviews this film has received astound me, as it relies too heavily on a situation to tell the story. I guess it's the whole thing about an alternate reality to the great American dream that may make American film critics praise the film, but I found nothing appealing in this. The kids in the film were just annoying; the parents were equally irritating (the actress who played the mum was found on Instagram...seriously) and Willem Defoe plays his character as if he has stumbled on the wrong film set. I preferred his performance in 1994's 'Body of Evidence' next to Madonna. This has been one of the worst movies I have seen this year. If you want to see this, just see the trailer. It covers the entire movie.
