    Review: “The Florida Project”

    By kyle | October 4, 2017

    A surprisingly ebullient film about long-term residents of a low-rent Orlando motel. My review.

      I thought that “The Florida Project” was a documentary until I read this review.

      In my experience volunteering at a homeless shelter, most of the women smoke (average price of a pack of cigarettes in California, $5.89) and have tattoos. They’re homeless and thinking about what their next tattoo should be.
