Destin Cretton’s “Short Term 12,” starring Brie Larson and John Gallagher Jr. as a couple working in a short-term unit for foster kids, has been receiving accolades since its debut at SXSW, where it won the Best Dramatic prize. The film hits theaters August 23. Check out the artful collection of posters for the film, plus the trailer, below.
Larson particularly has been winning raves for her performance as a strong but emotionally damaged young woman who is quick to help out the kids under her care but reluctant to deal with the issues in her own life.
