Redfern Arts Center - Putnam Theater
Friday, November 15, 2013
2013, USA, directed by Destin Cretton, Rated R, 96 minutes, Blu-Ray.
Director Destin Daniel Cretton expands his 2008 short work of the same name into a feature film depicting the struggles of a compassionate twenty-something contending with some unexpected life developments while working as a supervisor at a home for at-risk teens.
Grace (Brie Larson) has dedicated her life to helping kids who have slipped through the cracks of the system. Committed to her job and in love with kindhearted co-worker, Mason (John Gallagher Jr.), she's still struggling to make sense of her own troubled past when she learns that her life is about to change forever.
Meanwhile, into the facility walks a young girl who's been constantly shifted between group homes due to dangerous behavior.
Almost immediately, Grace forges a powerful connection with her new charge. Now if Grace can just open up to Mason the way she encourages her kids to open up to her, she may find a way to make peace with the future while still providing support to the kids who depend on her the most. © rottentomatoes.com
