Short Term 12

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

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.
