Short Term 12

The wonderful, hilarious, moving Closing Night triumph at this year’s MIFF returns! “A film about scars, some physical, others emotional, but all examined with a sensitivity and understanding that cuts deep. Set in a group home for damaged adolescents where staff members face many of the same challenges as their young charges, this compelling human drama finds fresh energy in the inspirational-teacher genre, constantly revealing new layers to its characters—none more complex than Brie Larson’s thick-skinned supervisor. This stunning SXSW fest winner puts the recent Sundance competition lineup to shame.”—Variety. R. 96 Min.
