What about a good film to watch?

The Florida Project

This film was made in 2017 fiction reflecting fact as it shines a light on the hand to mouth existence of children living on the peripheries of Disney World. Highlighting the life of those in poverty against an idyllic backdrop. As well as a compelling story it shows the complexities of life experienced through the eyes of children.

I found a resonance which reminded me that children see life as normal whatever their experience until someone shows or tells them otherwise. There is childhood innocence, pleasure in the small things and vulnerability which brings a human beauty to what is a hard and heart-breaking life.
