Short Term 12


Special introduction by Boston Online Film Critics Association member Norm Schrager!

(2013) dir Destin Cretton w/Brie Larson, John Gallagher Jr., Frantz Turner [96 min; DCP]
Touted by many as one of the best films of the year, SHORT TERM 12 features a stunning performance by Brie Larson as Grace, a twenty-something manager at a foster care home. While the focus is definitely on Grace, the other residents and staff of the home are all fully-realized characters and their interactions with each other are some of the most emotionally raw and honest seen on screen this year.

“A small wonder, a film of exceptional naturalness and empathy that takes material about troubled teenagers and young adults that could have been generic and turns it into something moving and intimate.” – Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
