This is a fascinating, moving story of a child living a precarious life at a motel in the shadow of Walt Disney World. It paints a complex picture of this world of poverty and danger and love and joy, and the child actors, especially, do an amazing job. Unfortunately, I loved it right up to the last scene, which undercut a lot of the rest of the movie for me.
Availability: In a few theaters, and available for purchase/rental.
Actor in a Supporting Role: YES DEFINITELY. Willem Dafoe is great here as the motel manager.
