Short Term 12

Short Term 12

Directed by Destin Cretton

Calm and competent, Grace is a young counsellor at a California care unit for at-risk teens. However, her cool facade begins to crack in the pressure cooker atmosphere as she and some of the unruly residents are reminded of past and present abuses.

A supervisor (Brie Larson) at a group home for at-risk teens connects with a new resident (Kaitlyn Dever) while facing a personal crisis of her own. This lovingly realized film finds truth and humor in unexpected places.

Cast: Stephanie Beatriz, Alex Calloway, Kaitlyn Dever, John Gallagher Jr., Brie Larson, Rami Malek, Lakeith Stanfield, Melora Walters

What a beautiful movie, the absolute truest I’ve watched growing up abused and how those scars live with us in every way!

A really heartwarming film that is both serious and comical throughout. The characters fit together like a jigsaw puzzle and personal histories unfold scene by scene. I found the film to be thought provoking and stimulating. I will keep my eye out for more from writer/director Destin Cretton.
