Short Term 12
What's it about?
Grace, a compassionate young supervisor at a foster care facility, helps at-risk teens. But when a new charge dredges up memories of her own troubled past, Grace's tough exterior begins eroding.
Why do we love it?
Interweaving the personal storylines of those in care and the carers, in 96 minutes you find yourself invested in the complex lives of the characters in a way that takes you by surprise. A bittersweet and beautiful film that deserves your attention.
