Short Term 12 2013

10.0

Short Term 12 is exactly like being injured in a part of your body where you didn’t think it was possible to get injured before. It will hurt but it will make you care. Natural and understated by budget and by purpose, it is powered by perfect performances that will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride you will never forget. It is at times sweet, at times depressing and at times hilarious. The thing is, without even taking into consideration its small budget or the importance of the issues it talks about – we would still consider Short Term 12 as one of the best movies of the past 20 years.

I like how the movie started the same the way it ended. At the end things are different but being so connected with the characters, I felt deep happiness inside me.

Honest portrayal of mental health issues that manages to be warm without overdoing anything. Top ten movie for me.

A really, really beautiful movie. Special mention to John Gallagher Jr and Keith Stanfield who felt so natural in their roles (like Brie Larson also did)

I loved this movie. Despite some hard moments, I found myself smiling at the end of it. A must-watch.

I recently recognized the guy in the new season of Easy, and Brie Larson has become such a megastar. Honestly, this movie is so good that anyone who was affiliated with it deserves all the acclaim.
