Short Term 12 (2013) R

Actress Brie Larson was robbed when she wasn’t nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in Short Term 12.

Larson is Grace, one of the supervisors at a foster care facility for troubled teens. The film explores the day to day life of the teens at the facility and Grace’s own background and home life–which includes her boyfriend and co-worker Mason. As expected, the movie is at times raw and intense, but it’s also compassionate and has some humorous moments. If you like movies that explore characters and their emotional lives, this is not to be missed.

Check out a review on RogerEbert.com from contributor Christy Lemire; panelists recently discussed the film after a showing at Ebertfest.
