Short Term 12 was beautiful. It makes you experience a whole spectrum of emotions while never feeling manipulative or unrealistic. Brie Larson was fantastic, Keith Stanfield was great and, while I already knew I liked him from The Newsroom, John Gallagher, Jr. was good in this too. My only complaint was that I wish there had been less hand-held shooting, or at least that it was less obvious in stationary shots and that it didn't constantly lose focus in moving close-ups. I cried manly tears.

Such a good movie. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a thought provoking straight to the point good old fashioned movie. With a very short run time for modern day features, its refreshing how effective the story played out.

A tough, touching, and humorous look at a youth foster/psych home and its staff. It would have been very easy for this movie to slide into triteness and over-saccharine lessons, but outside of a few moments, it always feels grounded and real. A large part of that is thanks to the children actors, so often a detriment, they truly shine in this movie. Especially strong is the young man who plays Marcus, he may have big things ahead of him. The intimate camera work and natural feel to scenes add to the sense that you are in the world with these characters, and it rewards you in an emotional way. The connections and empathy you build are more than enough for me to overcome any of the writing flaws, though there aren't many to begin with. An incredible film, I'm excited to see what the writer/director has in the future.

It is one of those films that you really feel for the characters. Its story is very engaging, heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

I heard a lot about this film before. People kept saying it was one of the best films they have ever seen. While I cannot say the same, it is certainly a More

A raw and heady drama that doesn't lose touch with its humanity or delve so far into the somber material that it feels like a drag. In a performance that catapulted her to greater visibility, Brie Larson plays Grace, supervisor-cum-therapist to a small houseful of troubled youths. Grace seems to More
