Short Term 12

This is what movies should be like. This movie was deep with emotion but balances out with comedic relief. This is directed beautifully and sometimes haunting. It's welded together with excellent acting, great cinematography and fantastic music. The acting is Oscar worthy as everyone pulls their weight. Brie Larson is the star in this as she portrays a very broken person and you feel for her. She has a lot of depth to her character and she executes it flawlessly. This also has some of the best child acting I ever seen. Every child in this was amazing and sometimes heart breaking to watch. The cinematography was shot very well and adds a warmth to it as we watch these characters struggle. It's almost as if the cinematography sheds the light for these characters. It is edited seamlessly and keeps you hooked even from the first minute. This is something to not miss. It focuses on kids in a foster home and the people that work there and you care about everyone. I don't want to say much about the plot because I want you to see this is excellent piece of filmmaking. This is one of my favorite movies of the year along with The Spectacular Now. This is a film to remember. 10/10
