Even though Short Term 12 is a couple of years old (I think it was released in 2013), I try to take every opportunity to talk about it. Describing this movie is hard but I'll try. Essentially, it's about a group of 20-somethings that work at a treatment facility for at-risk youth.
But after watching the film, it's about so much more than that. The acting goes above and beyond a lot of what I've seen, to the point where I felt like I could have been watching a documentary.
It's emotional, it's heartbreaking, and it's beautiful. I don't know what else to say. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think!
