Exclusive: Alternate Poster For Festival Fave ‘Short Term 12’ Starring Brie Larson

Exclusive: Alternate Poster For Festival Fave 'Short Term 12' Starring Brie Larson

Writer/director Destin Cretton‘s second feature, “Short Term 12,” has taken the festival circuit by storm since its debut at South by Southwest this spring, where it scooped up the Grand Jury and Audience Award for Narrative Feature. Since then, it’s also won the Audience Award at the 2013 LA Film Festival, and recently premiered in New York at the BAM Cinemafest

Cinedigm will be releasing the film in theaters on August 23rd, and today, we have an alternate poster to the one that debuted several weeks ago. This one features a block-cut illustration of Brie Larson‘s character, Grace, comforting her troubled charge, Jayden (Kaitlyn Dever), at the short-term foster care facility where she works. And yes, that’s both an indieWIRE quote and a Playlist quote on the poster. Our review from SXSW says the film, “expresses its serious subject matter in a fresh and authentic manner, never relying on the content itself to keep the viewer’s interest but how it unfolds for the audience, anchored to these characters who we grow to deeply care about.” In addition to Larson and Dever, the film stars John Gallagher, Jr., Rami Malek, and Keith Stanfield.

Check out the alternate poster below, and keep an eye out for “Short Term 12” when it drops on August 23rd— this is not one to be missed.
