Breathtaking on too many levels. Still thinking about that spell-bounding one-hour long take in 3D, that proves that 3D serves more than just spectacle purposes. Here, it's so delicately used, another layer of impenetrability to a story where truth and fiction are blurred. And boy, does the entire film feel like a swoony dream -- flashes of scenes, fragmented time, striking lighting and costuming, romantic angst. My first film in a cinema in 2019, and the bar has been set *high*.

A modest film, yet Short Term 12 is charming, funny, heartfelt and poignant at the same time - packing the incredible performance of Brie Larson to create one of my favourite films of the year. There is just a big, fat heart that this film encompasses, and the well-developed characters and naturalism to the plot assists in…
