Along the way all the characters' stories seamlessly and elegantly ripple into each other to form conclusions that contradict current social and political tendencies and movements that promote alienation and detachment.
The unembellished emotional honesty conveyed in the indie drama Short Term 12 is so expertly handled that it carries the viewer past any hesitations harbored regarding the film's overly familiar storyline.
Difficult to describe without it sounding manipulative or melodramatic but I'll do my best. Trust me when I tell you that this is one of the best films you'll see all year. It's pure, true, and remarkably moving.
