Such a good movie. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a thought provoking straight to the point good old fashioned movie. With a very short run time for modern day features, its refreshing how effective the story played out.

I saw Short Term 12 and it was one of the most underwhelming movies I have ever seen. I go out of my way to watch indie movies because I want to see something different and unexpected, but what I got was a by-the-books, predictable, bland, pandering movie that was basically just a Hollywood movie with less money.
