Director: Sean Baker
This subtle yet powerful film presents an empathetic and colourful look at childhood amid poverty set in the shadow of the imagined utopia of Disney World. Supported by her rebellious young mother, who must explore increasingly risky means to survive, and the motel manager, played masterfully by Willem Dafoe, Brooklyn Prince’s award-winning portrayal of an ebullient six-year-old is a poignant and unforgettable celebration of life. A unique, deeply humane film that overflows with euphoria and sadness.
