Short Term 12 (2013) is a movie directed by newcomer Destin Daniel Cretton. It was based on his own experiences working at a group facility for troubled teenagers, which lead him to write and direct a short-movie produced in 2009, eventually inspiring this long feature.
Like always, I do not wish to give much away… especially with this one. I would prefer if you would experience this movie the same way I did, which was by not knowing anything whatsoever about the storyline. Please try your best to not watch the trailer and just rely on pure faith that this movie will have an impact.
Those of you who trust my judgement and taste in movies, please watch this. Terrific indie-film with talented young cast, wonderful directing / scripting and awesome soundtrack.
You will not regret this.
