The Playlist - Katie Walsh
Short Term 12 is a roller coaster of every emotion, managing to be both heartwarming and heartrending at once.

IndieWire - Eric Kohn
Taking its time to let the world take shape, Short Term 12 builds to an involving series of mini-climaxes without tidying up every loose end.

Village Voice - Inkoo Kang
It's a delicate yet passionate creation, modest in scope but almost overwhelming in its emotional intricacy, ambition, and resonance. Easily one of the best films so far this year, it's a nearly perfect blend of pimple-faced naturalism, righteous moral fury, nuanced social insight, and unsentimental but devastating drama.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Brie Larson, as the caring but tormented Grace (who's pregnant and doesn't know if she has the faith to have her baby), and John Gallagher Jr., as her gentle-dweeb fellow worker Mason (who fears his love can't save her), show you what emotionally naked acting is all about.

The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
A genuinely moving look at life in a group foster home that avoids most of the usual routes into viewers' hearts.

Short Term 12 (2013)



Grace, a compassionate young supervisor at a foster care facility, works with her boyfriend and colleague, Mason, to help at-risk teens. But when a new charge dredges up memories of her own troubled past, Grace's tough exterior begins eroding.
