Short Term 12
a film by Destin Cretton 2013
At a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers, Grace is a young counselor trying to do her best for kids who often have been pulled from the worst kinds of home situations. Even then, life is not easy as Grace and her colleagues care for kids who are profoundly scarred, even as they try to have lives of their own. One of the most overlooked films of the year, it was considered by many critics to be one of the year’s best.
