Unlike your average first year student, however, Thelma also happens to possess a telekinetic mind.

Set in the weird and wacky tourist utopia surrounding Disneyland, The Florida Project is a unique drama about America’s forgotten class that's filled with comedy and characters as warm as the Florida sun. The film follows young mother Hailey (Bria Vinaite) and her young daughter Monoee (Brooklynn Prince) as they stay in a motel full of eccentric characters and managed by an against-type Willem Defoe.
