Meet the Filmmaker: Producer Joshua Astrachan will be present for a discussion after the film.
This tale of delicate intensity about lost young people who are hoping to be found centers on a group home for at-risk adolescents. Grace, a serious young woman who works with these teenagers, all but bleeds for them as they wait in limbo, uncertain of their futures. The very real images and scenes create an intimacy that never feels intrusive or exploitive, contributing to a pungent slice of life narrative.
"Short Term 12 is 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, Los Angeles Times
"It's one of the best movies of the year and one of the truest portrayals I've ever seen about troubled teens and the people who dedicate their lives to trying to help them." Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"A pitch-perfect feel-good film" A.M. Homes, Vanity Fair
"Phenomenally moving" David Edelstein, New York Magazine
