Storyline

Halley lives with her six year old daughter Moonee in a budget motel along one of the commercial strips catering to the Walt 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 ...

Save yourselves!
27 November 2017 | by cribbageanyone29See all my reviews

I'm only doing this in the hope I can save someone else from making the same mistake I made: Trusting the reviews and going to see this movie.

It's sort of like signing up to Yelp to warn others about the rotten tomatoes you were served at a bad restaurant. I fail to see the basis for numerous glowing reviews either for cinematography, story line, or performances. There are no characters whom one can develop any sentiment for, neither the youthfully immoral little girl, the struggling and scamming but infantile trash mouthed mother, nor the paternalistic hotel manager, or other tangential cast members. OK, back to the professional reviews, the review rating in at one out of ten, mentioned a high volume of walk outs, once the audience figured out what kind of movie this was going to be. I considered doing the same, but I was in a good mood and had just shelled out the big bucks to watch this movie. There was supposed to be an ending that packed a punch to the audience's expectations. But there really wasn't, the ending seemed like it was recorded surreptitiously, meanwhile the sadness and depravity of all these characters begins to sink in, and you ask yourself, Why did I want to go see this movie? Just don't!!!!
