‘Short Term 12'

★★1⁄2 (out of 4)

R

Southside Works Cinemas


By The Tribune-Review

Published: Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013, 7:52 p.m.

A low-key, high-emotion indie set in a foster-care facility for at-risk teens, with a career-defining performance from Brie Larson as the supervisor who hides her own hurt with an outsized empathy. Full of heart and heartbreak, it's also funny and inspired.
