3SMReviews: Short Term 12
Sometimes when there is a lot of tremendous gushing about a movie* it scares me off and that’s one reason it took me so long to catch up with this fabulous film. However, I should not have tarried, as this has an interesting setting (“short-term” care facility for troubled youth) and great female character in the lead as well as an excellent romantic interest. It’s sweet without being saccharine and hard without being formidable, and I highly recommend you search it out.

*The Filmspotting podcast I listen to could not say enough good things about this movie.
