Watch the First Trailer for Festival Favorite ‘Short Term 12’

Brie Larson is a serious catch. If you were unsure of that, just peruse her Criterion Collection Top 10 for a moment. And until this year, the subtly brilliant and exceedingly talented 23-year-old actress who we first fell in love with in The United States of Tara, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Rampart, had yet to lead a film of her own. In an interview with the Huffington Post back in March, Larson said, "I kept bumping up against this weird thing where I couldn’t imagine myself being the lead of something. I didn’t buy it, so I didn’t think anybody else would." But with her latest film, the emotionally powerful festival award-winner Short Term 12, Larson’s starring role fears can certainly dissipate as she leads the drama with absolute strength of character in a performance that shows just how young women of Hollywood should be doing it. 

Written and directed by Destin Cretton and starring a fantastic cast of John Gallagher Jr., Kaitlyn Dever, Rami Malek, and many more, Short Term 12 tells the story of Grace, a supervising staff member at a foster care facility for troubled minors , who finds herself forced to deal with her own past and psychological issues when a new member of the facility arrives. It’s a beautifully done film that feels honest and fully-realized, it’s characters rich, not just there to pull at your tear ducts but to engage you and bring you into their compassionate story.
And now, with the film’s premiere later this summer, a theatrical trailer has been released. Check it out below.
