Grace (Brie Larson), a young supervising staff member of a foster care facility, looks after troubled teens and reckons with her own past alongside her co-worker and longtime boyfriend, Mason (John Gallagher Jr.).

"Short Term 12 is a small wonder, a film of exceptional naturalness and empathy that takes material about troubled teenagers and young adults that could have been generic and turns it into something moving and intimate."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"It's a delicate yet passionate creation, modest in scope but almost overwhelming in its emotional intricacy, ambition, and resonance. Easily one of the best films so far this year, it's a nearly perfect blend of pimple-faced naturalism, righteous moral fury, nuanced social insight, and unsentimental but devastating drama."
- Inkoo Kang, Village Voice
"Taking its time to let the world take shape, Short Term 12 builds to an involving series of mini-climaxes without tidying up every loose end."
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
"Short Term 12 is a roller coaster of every emotion, managing to be both heartwarming and heartrending at once."
- Katie Walsh, The Playlist
"What might seem on paper a cloyingly sentimental heartwarmer becomes, in [Director] Cretton's hands, a briskly believable, often funny, always invigorating and ultimately wrenching story of emotional fortitude."
- Bob Mondello, NPR
"Short Term 12, a low-budget feature only 96 minutes long, is a big deal on a small scale: for what it reveals of Mr. Cretton as a filmmaker — especially as a storyteller, and a director of actors within tautly constructed scenes — and of Ms. Larson's abundant talent."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
