Brie Larson is superb in this brilliant exploration of life in a short term care facility where troubled teens try to find a way to survive in the care of compassionate men and women.

A heartbreaking drama about the lingering affects of childhood abuse and neglect, even under the best of curative circumstances.

Short is all nuanced performances bathed in sumptuous Californian sunlight: its realism is reflected in its lo-fi aesthetic and naturalistic cinematography.

Cretton is able to leap tall towers of everyday humour and humanity and then suddenly drop you into a pit of total, gut-wrenching sadness in a single bound.

Short Term 12 hits hard at times, yet despite its potentially melodramatic subject matter, never once feels manipulative or overwrought.

There's an 'American' quality to its social conscience that I cannot recall perceiving in any other recent film.

Sufferers of 'Stendhal syndrome' - that singularly wonderful and hopelessly human disorder in which people confronted with particularly beautiful artworks become dizzy and often faint - beware.

While the topics are serious and the film heartfelt as it provides a genuine insight into troubled lives, there is a surprising lightness about much of the experience, making the bitter-sweet journey all the more rewarding

If we're lucky -- if the tides are right and the winds are calm -- we might get one or two movies a year as good as Short Term 12.
