Synopsis

Six-year-old Moonee (Brooklynn Prince) and her mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) live in a budget motel run by Bobby (Willem Dafoe). Halley struggles to make the week-to-week rent by doing odd jobs such as selling branded perfumes on the streets. She soon gets desperate when she isn't making enough and resorts to desperate measures.

In the meantime, Moonee lives her life to the fullest, causing trouble wherever she goes. She makes new friends at the motel and gets them into scrapes as well. Looking at the world through Moonee's eyes, the film follows her journey during the summer days at the motel.

  • 5 stars "So unusual // So "Tell it like it is" (how she people live)// Its sadness, to see generations developing // Its amazing acting by the children, and Dafoe and lead female."
  • 1 star "This movie had no redeeming qualities about it.Kept waiting for it to get a foothold never did, Was going to leave half way through,but thought it would turn..toward something,anything. Thankfully it ended..Better suited to make a documentery about people living on the edge than pan this off as a movie"
  • 5 stars "Very humanistic representation of how children can be oblivious, or are simply too young to understand the things that are happening around them. On top of that, the cinematography and colors are amazing!"
