The critically acclaimed new film Short Term 12 explores the world of at-risk teens living in a group home. The film is based on the experiences of writer/director Destin Cretton. Unable to find work in his field after college, he found employment in a group home. The experience touched him so deeply that he went on to write and direct a 20-minute short that won the Jury Prize at Sundance in 2009, then wrote a script for a feature version that won a Nicholl Fellowship in 2010. The top-notch cast is led by Brie Larson (of Spectacular Now and United States of Tara), who plays Grace, a supervisor at the home. Tough but compassionate, Grace excels at caring for her young charges, despite her own troubled past. Also excellent is John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom), as Grace’s colleague/boyfriend Mason. In spite of its oft-dark subject matter, the film is charming, moving, and hopeful, making Short Term 12 one of the best films of the year.
