A few months ago, a friend of mine invited me to something called the Virtuoso Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. I only knew 2 of the celebrities receiving the award, but I went just to do something different! A winner I didn't know was Brie Larson, a somewhat quirky person. Her movie clip struck me as very moving and her personality was very unique!
While looking for something to watch with a different friend tonight, Short Term 12 stuck out to me. He is usually up for watching anything so he readily agreed to watch. It was sooooooooooo good! Brie Larsen along with the rest of the cast did an amazing job!
The plot revolves around Grace, a supervisor at a short term stay facility for troubled kids. Throughout the movie, you learn that Grace has a troubled past of her own. The movie mostly takes place at the facility, and you really get to know the kids there while also learning about what these facilities are like.
I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a really good, independent film!
