“Heartwarming, Heartbreaking, and Beautiful”


“Short Term 12” is a wonderful film about neglected youths, the human spirit, and ultimately about relationships.

The film primarily follows three story lines; the main one is about Grace, a very caring supervisor at a foster-care facility whose past comes back to haunt her, another one is about a 17-year old boy named Marcus, a kid who has to be discharged from the facility when he turns 18 years old  and finally about a girl named Jayden, a troubled teenager that deals with neglect and parental abuse.

The story flows very well and theres not a dull moment! My eyes was glued to the screen throughout. The acting performances in the film are fantastic aswell as the directing, and writing. The acting performances are superb, especially by Brie Larson.

“Short Term 12” is raw and powerful! I highly recommend you check this out!
