‘The Florida Project’ (2017) The director of “Tangerine,” Sean Baker, returns with another warm and funny portrait of life on the fringes, melding a cast of nonactors and newcomers with an Oscar-nominated Willem Dafoe as the manager of a cheap Orlando motel populated by confused tourists and barely-managing families. The script (by Baker and Chris Bergoch) captures, with startling verisimilitude, the anxieties of living paycheck-to-paycheck (particularly when the next paycheck’s very existence is uncertain) while also borrowing the devil-may-care playfulness of the children at the story’s center. Our critic called it “risky and revelatory.” (Fans of this risky drama may also enjoy “The Kindergarten Teacher.”) Watch on Netflix— https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/arts/television/best-movies-on-netflix.html?campaign_id=20&emc=edit_wg_20200815&instance_id=21317&nl=watching&regi_id=31482837&segment_id=36208&te=1&user_id=b828fd82caafc4f4212b441580414f7d
