(2013) - Drama - 96 minutes - R
Where to Watch: Netflix
It's rare for a movie this “short” (see what we did there?) to be able to take you on such a remarkable introspective journey. This roller coaster of emotions depicts a short term housing group where kids are sent if they are a danger to themselves or others.
We see the story from multiple angles including through the eyes of kids who have been there for years, a girl who arrives for the first time, as well as the human side of the workers, some tenured and some brand new to the job.

We think that this was also somehow a warm film. Do you agree? If so, what did the director do to convey heartache and warmth simultaneously?
