The Florida Project

Sean Baker's film opens with a depressing scene of small child misbehavior: A group of wild-eyed 6- and 7-year-olds cross the street from their seedy Orlando, Fla., residence motel, The Magic Castle, and entertain themselves sitting up on the second floor balcony of an adjoining place, spitting down at a car beneath them in the parking lot. That is, until the car's owner, a fierce woman named Stacy (Josie Olivo), comes out to intervene, and the kids flip her off and cruise in a fit of naughty giggles, vamoosing the scene of the crime.

Helpful Hints

DEAR HELOISE: I have a suggestion for young travelers: Pick out one basic color when planning your travel wardrobe, such as gray, black, brown or even navy, and build around that one color. I use black -- black jeans with a red or white blouse, maybe a black sweater and a white one, a black pencil skirt and black low-heeled shoes. You can switch your clothing around to create new looks every day as long as you stick to one basic color. Continue reading...

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I grew up in a religious home, but I rebelled against all that, and I suppose you could say I've been living like the devil ever since. I know I'm on a dead-end road, but I don't think I can do anything about it. Has God given up on me? Continue reading...
