Film description

Right from the start, Cretton throws us into a scene where drama lurks below the humorous veneer and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the final credits – no wonder the script won the Academy Nicholl Fellowship. This story about teens in a correctional center is excellent at dosing emotional nuances and offers a generous amount of empathy without being grimly serious. The film reviews their overwhelming problems mainly through the perspective of Grace (Brie Larson) who runs the center. Her private affairs turn out to be dangerously close to her professional matters in a film that manages to provide a sensitive though not sentimental view of the disadvantaged.
