Short Term 12


96 min minutes

Short Term 12 is set at a residential facility for high-risk kids, overseen by a staff not far from childhood themselves. Leading the charge is Grace (Brie Larson), a twentysomething of remarkable self-possession. These are kids who have experienced things that are left unspecified, but still have the power to inspire emotional explosions, from shrieking to cutting to deadly mayhem. Helping Grace is Mason (John Gallagher Jr.), her live-in boyfriend and fellow counselor, who buffers Grace's no-bullshit approach with an avuncular-stoner vibe. From top to bottom, Short Term 12 is laced with moments of deep, messy humanity that will take your breath away. (DAVID SCHMADER)
