Of all the cities in Florida, Orlando has that magical quality of making us feel like everything is possible. That is precisely why producers and film directors have used several locations in the city throughout the years to bring their stories to life for the big screen. In case you were curious about it, here is a list of seven movies filmed in Orlando that you probably didn't know about.\nThe Florida Project \n View this post on Instagram “What makes Sean Baker's film such a transcendent experience is that he took a subject full of despair, and spun it into a powerful film that pulses with life, joy and natural beauty. It's both the most devastating and euphoric film experience of 2017… Seek out #TheFloridaProject,” declares @Newsweek. - So proud of Sean, Willem, Bria, Brooklynn, Valeria — everyone involved in creating the pure, unforgettable magic of #TheFloridaProject 🌈 A post shared by The Florida Project (@thefloridaproject) on Jan 23, 2018 at 3:25pm PST\n\nRating: 96% on Rotten Tomatoes\nWhy You Need To Watch It: This celebrated film directed by Sean Baker and released in 2017 at the Cannes Festival and was entirely filmed in Osceola County. The purple fictional "Magic Castle" motel actually exists and its name is Magic Castle Inn & Suites. You can visit it on U.S. Highway 192 in Kissimmee, about six miles away from Walt Disney World.\nMonster\n\nRating: 81% on Rotten Tomatoes\nWhy You Need To Watch It: This movie gave Charlize Theron her first Best Actress nomination and first Oscar for her memorable depiction of hitchhiking prostitute Aileen Wuornos. The 2003 film had several filming locations, including Orlando, Kissimmee, and the Daytona International Speedway. The Last Resor Bar and Scoot Inn motel, both portrayed in the film, still receive tons of customers because of the movie.\nOcean's Eleven\n View this post on Instagram Ocean's Eleven Directed by: Steven Soderberg Starring: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon Availabe on Netflix. I recently watched Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! which I thought was a heist film, but now after watching this I feel that it wasn't a heist film. Ocean's Eleven, throws in so much of security jargon all over and it adds so many conflicts in the way during the heist, unlike Oye Lucky! where he gets away so easily everywhere. Here, the level of security or the power of antagonism is so high, that it raises the curiosity for us to see how they are going to pull this off. There is a screenwriting rule, which says that your characters can get into trouble because of chance but not out of it; this is followed religiously in this film. There is a better level of satisfaction when you see hard work go into something for anything that our characters get in a movie, if they get or get away with things easily it is difficult to empathize with them. Here, the protagonists are on the wrong side of the law and there is not much reason for us to empathize with them; we just watch them to get amazed by how they can pull off something like that.
