Short Term 12 
Rewardingly Pure
4/4 stars

'Short Term 12' is an amazingly sincere and heartfelt drama. It effectively captures honest portrayals of less fortunate youth. Every character is immediately identifiable and their emotional struggles carry a heavy, realistic weight. Having a main character who has experienced as much pain as those she cares for adds even more to the authenticity. It's rare that a film this small and intimate can reach such dramatic compelling heights. That's not to say this film is in any way depressing or emotionally draining. In fact, it's mostly the opposite. The amount of compassion and light, tender moments bring the right balance of upbeat nature to the material. The story breaks your heart, then mends it through positivity. The success of this film is entirely based on the fact that it is absolutely pure. Great entertainment, with even greater rewards. One of the best of 2013!
