    Short Term 12

    ★★★★★

    One of the most personal and emotional films I've seen put to screen. This is the story of a group home for troubled teens with Brie Larson being one of the supervisors there.

I ended up really enjoying this movie, but I feel like it may lose many watchers with its non-stop economic talk throughout the film. I was able to keep up with most of the movie, dealing with the housing crisis during the…
