Short Term 12

After reading plenty of reviews naming it one of the best movies of 2013, I was excited to finally watch Short Term 12

And, you guys, it was well worth the wait.

It was beautiful and heartbreaking and captivating and agonizing. Set in a foster-care facility, Short Term 12 revolves around Grace (Brie Larson), a young counsellor who's working through her own stuff as she cares for troubled teens. Out of all the movies I've featured here on my blog, this one is by far my favourite.

It's heavy, so I recommend watching it alone or with a friend or two. You may want to hash it out with someone once it's over. (Available on Netflix or iTunes)
