Storyline

Halley lives with her six year old daughter Moonee in a budget motel along one of the commercial strips catering to the Disney World tourist clientele outside Orlando, Florida. Halley, who survives largely on welfare, has little respect for people, especially those who cross her, it an attitude that she has passed down to Moonee, who curses and gives the finger like her mother. Although the motel's policy is not to allow long term rentals, Bobby, the motel manager, has made arrangements for people like Halley to live there while not undermining the policy as he realizes that many such tenants have no place to go otherwise. Halley, Moonee and Moonee's friends, who live in the motel or others like it along the strip and who she often drags into her disruptive pranks, are often the bane of Bobby's existence, but while dealing with whatever problem arises, Bobby has a soft spot especially for the children and thus, by association, their parents, as he knows that Moonee and others like her...

Trivia

In the original script, Willem Dafoe's character Bobby was meant to have a brother who helped out at the hotel. However, as filming progressed, the parent-child relationship theme manifested itself more clearly, and the decision was made for him instead to have a son. Caleb Landry Jones was cast only two weeks prior to shooting his scenes. See more »

his got great reviews, Oscar Buzz...... I just didn't get what was great about it.

OMFG that movie was terrible! The life of sub white trash who live in a motel on the outskirts of Floridas Disneyworld. A hundred or so unrelated boring scenes of a scuzzy trailer trash hooker / stripper her dirty 6 year old brat and other dirt bags that float around the edges of this toilet. NO plot until the very end..... could have maybe made an OK short film.

The symbolism of the millionaires helicopters buzzing past the poor people... OK we get it. We got it the first 3 times.

Little to no character development, endless redundant scenes of 3 brats getting into increasingly cringe worthy trouble... It could have / should have been cut down to a 20 or 30 minute short film.
