I wanted to see this movie as soon as I heard about it And based on the Trailer and reviews i have read.This is a must see/got to see movie for me! Movies just like Short Term 12 are the ones that Independent Films are all about and these are the ones that I love the most!.They tell a story and move you,and really suck you into the lives of the characters.
Short Term 12 is already a Grand Jury winner and audience awards at SXSW and the audience award for best narrative feature Sunday as the Los Angeles Film Festival . Brie Larson gives a moving Oscar worthy (my opinion) performance as Grace.
In Theaters August 23rd
The following is taken from the YouTube about page:
Short Term 12 is told through the eyes of Grace (Brie Larson) , a twenty-something
supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. Passionate
and tough, Grace is a formidable caretaker of the kids in her charge --
and in love with her long-term boyfriend and co-worker, Mason.
Grace's own difficult past -- and the surprising future that suddenly
presents itself -- throw her into unforeseen confusion, made all the
sharper with the arrival of a new intake at the facility: a gifted but
troubled teenage girl with whom Grace has a charged connection.
the subject matter is complex and often dark, this lovingly realized
film finds truth -- and humor -- in unexpected places.
