’Party of the first part’ sometimes comes out ‘arty o’ the irst art.’

Short Term 12has got heart, soul,
comedy, drama, poignancy and it will take you down a path few movies do
in any serious way. It's not just top notch 'indie cinema' it's good
cinema all around. The directing and writing by Destin Cretton will make
you wonder how this could be a first feature. The performances by Brie
Larson and John Gallagher Jr are so genuine you feel they aren't acting.
In fact, the whole cast is impressive. Go see it.
