How horrifically alive the past is, pervading the present into a bleak and uncertain future...

All the hurt could only stand above you if you let it. And the shadow it casts, someone (if you can't) must take notice does not, need not define you and the rest of your days. Some of them are in this picture. They are as real as any of your fears can be. Let this film ease up some of the... read more

This movie came with a surprise, keeping everything so simple. The director's first full length feature which is actually based on his short movie of the same name. This movie tells the story of a group of young foster-care home supervisors and teenagers who live under their observation.

A realistic movie with well balanced between characters and its narration. It was very much... read more

This is seriously the best among all the Indie movies I've watched so far. Simply amazing! The individual journey of characters, the plot, musical score, actors' chemistry! The material is so well written- extremely emotional without having to actually overdo things!

Brilliant!simply brilliant! And to think, this is the first feature length film of the director who also is the one who... read more

Description: Short Term 12 is told through the eyes of Grace, a twenty-something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers. Passionate and tough, Grace is a formidable caretaker of the kids in her charge – and in love with her long-term boyfriend and co-worker, Mason.

While the subject matter is complex and often dark, this lovingly realized film ... (more)

Short Term 12

“We could have easily descended into emotional bathos and clichéd “hope and love wins” triumph of spirit stuff in Short Term 12, but we skirt past it. Oh, there’s a few spots where the machinations are in place to edge us towards that, but the remarkable work from an incredibly talented cast keeps it all real. Sometimes too painfully real, but these moments of bruised emotional connection are what make the film so magical and healing.   These kids come from rough spots, and two main facility managers understand their pains all too intimately. The story primarily concerns the lives of several of the kids and the managers, but as the film goes on it hones in on the connection between two of them.
