    Short Term 12 takes you on quite a ride from beginning to end, you really feel for and get to know the characters. The way it is shot makes you feel like you are there, great cinematography. I would watch this film again, it has a timeless essence that most people can relate to.

    I fall in love with Brie Larson any time I watch her in a movie. This was wonderfully directed and great look into the lives of children in foster car as well as those who work in foster care

    Wonderfully acted by Brie Larson and exceeedingly emotive. You cannot help but care about the troubled teens and their outcome here. This film shows that no matter how it looks on the outside, we are all damaged in some way by our experiences, but, more importantly, it shows that there are people out there who still care.
