Short Term 12 Drama

Brie Larson in 'Short Term 12'

"Short Term 12" is told through the eyes of Grace (Brie Larson, "21 Jump Street" and Showtime’s "The United States of Tara"), a twenty-something supervisor at a 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 (John Gallagher Jr., HBO’s "The Newsroom" and Tony Award-winner for "Spring Awakening"). But Grace’s own difficult past – and the surprising future that suddenly presents itself – throw her into unforeseen confusion, made all the sharper with the arrival of a new intake at the facility: a gifted but troubled teenage girl with whom Grace has a charged connection. While the subject matter is complex, this lovingly realized film finds truth – and humor – in unexpected places. The second feature from Destin Daniel Cretton ("I Am Not a Hipster"), "Short Term 12" also stars Kaitlyn Dever ("Bad Teacher"), Rami Malek ("The Master"), and newcomer Keith Stanfield.
