Near Perfect Film
It’s rare that a film moves you to tears and in the next moment makes you belly laugh, all within a context of a very real, grounded story.
This film has some of the strongest writing, acting, and directing I’ve seen in American cinema since American Beauty was released. Subtle, incredibly deep, and full of unsentimental heart and compassion. It’s about people who have been damaged by the people who are supposed to protect them the most: their parents. And it’s not just about that. It’s about how the human spirit can, with care and respect, somehow sustain after such darkness. It’s about real love.
This film is why I go to the movies. This film is why I’ve made my livelihood movies. Bravo Mr. Cretton and everyone involved with the film. I wish you nothing but the best.
Great Acting in an absorbing drama
Short Term 12 is a powerful and moving drama that leaves you with warm feelings on conclusion. It depicts the personal struggles of a group of teenagers in supported care and their carers.
Dramas of this sort can sometimes leave you feeling gloomy and have a depressing feel. It certainly has dark moments of personal struggle, dealing in mental health, domestic abuse, self harm and suicide but the standard of acting and ending of the movie most definitely leave you feeling positive.
What stands out most about this film however is the cast. There are several strong performances even from the supporting cast with minor screen time. Brie Larson in the lead role excels. A breakout performance in a slow moving drama. One particular scene that comes to mind is the scene with Frantz Turner playing Jack. The outburst is a culmination of her protecting Jayden (played very well by Kaitlyn Dever) who she has begun to understand and create a close bond with, along with her own personal life frustrations. It is Jayden and not her boyfriend, despite his attempts, who allow Grace to open up and deal with her own personal struggles and her past. John Gallagher Jnr, who I had not seen much of prior to this movie also puts in an understated performance as the caring and supporting boyfriend and provides a few moments of comedic relief throughout the drama. I should also mention his scene at his foster family birthday celebration. The scene is only short but the emotion he displays in saying thank you to his foster parents was powerful. This is also one of the early roles for Rami Malek, who has now gone on like Brie to much more significant roles. He doesn’t have much screen time in this and no particular scenes of note. Other than Brie however I believe Lakeith Stanfield as Marcus puts in the best performance. His backstory doesn’t get as much time as Jayden and it is less central to the plot of the film which is mainly the Grace/Jayden/Mason arc, but all of his scenes are very strong and he is very believable.
