Warm, winning, and gloriously alive, Sean Baker’s The Florida Project is a deeply moving and unforgettably poignant look at childhood. Set on a stretch of highway just outside the imagined utopia of Disney World, The Florida Project follows six-year-old Moonee and her rebellious mother Halley over the course of a single summer. The two live week to week at “The Magic Castle,” a budget hotel managed by Bobby, whose stern exterior hides a deep reservoir of kindness and compassion. Despite her harsh surroundings, the precocious and ebullient Moonee has no trouble making each day a celebration of life, her endless afternoons overflowing with mischief and grand adventure as she and her ragtag playmates—including Jancey, a new arrival to the area who quickly becomes Moon’s best friend—fearlessly explore the utterly unique world into which they've been thrown. Unbeknownst to Moonee, however, her delicate fantasy is supported by the toil and sacrifice of Halley, who is forced to explore increasingly dangerous possibilities in order to provide for her daughter.

Poetically photographed by Vittorio Storaro, Wonder Wheel is a powerful dramatic tale of passion, violence, and betrayal that plays out against the picturesque tableau of 1950s Coney Island.

Screening in February
Sun 25th

Watch the trailer!


The breakout French hit of the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival, where it premiered in the Directors’ Fortnight to multiple, raucous standing ovations, writer/director Carine Tardieu’s charming romantic comedy JUST TO BE SURE is a winning tale of parenthood, love and family, both lost and found. When lonely 45-year-old widower Erwan (the remarkable François Damiens, The Bélier Family) discovers by accident that that man who raised him isn’t his real father, he begins a search for his biological one. Thanks to a local private detective he soon locates the mischievous, 70-something Joseph (Le Havre’s Andre Wilms), whom it seems his mother may have known briefly. Erwan soon falls not only for his charm, but that of the impetuous Anna (a radiant Cécile de France), who has ties to them both. But the conflicting loyalties become compounded by the pregnancy of his own daughter (Alice de Lencquesaing), who defiantly refuses to name the father… very soon Erwan’s families begin to collide, to unexpected, hilarious and moving effect.
