The first trailer from 'The Florida Project' will probably make you cry

by

The first official trailer for The Florida Project has finally been released and not only will it probably make you cry a little bit, it's also packed with some familiar Orlando-area sights.

The film centers around the summer adventures of a pair of 6-year-old girls living in budget motels not far from Walt Disney World. It stars Willem Dafoe, whose family has roots in the Orlando area, was directed by Sean Baker (Tangerine) and was shot almost entirely in Osceola County.

So you'll probably recognize quite a few local landmarks in this trailer.

Last May, The Florida Project was considered one of the best films at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. The Hollywood Reporter called it "a fabulous mosaic of one particular pocket of America's invisible homeless population."

The film debuts Oct. 6.
