The young stars of the critically acclaimed film The Florida Project will be hosting a question-and-answer session after Friday night's 6:30 p.m. screening of the movie at the Enzian Theater.

Child actresses Brooklynn Prince and Valeria Cotto will be attending tonight's screening. Brooklynn, 7, of Winter Springs, plays Moonee, the film's main character. Moonee and her mother Halley (Bria Vinaite) struggle to make ends meet while living in a cheap motel near Disney World on Kissimmee's dilapidated tourist strip, State Highway 192. Valeria, also 7, of Davenport, plays Jancey, Moonee's new friend. At a press meet earlier this month, both girls said they were real-life best friends and often meet for play dates.



The Enzian is located at 1300 South Orlando Ave., Maitland. Purchase tickets for tonight's screening at the Enzian here.
