    ★★★★

    This film was a claustrophobic, unsettling, and gripping psychological thriller-turned-drama about the extent of a mother's love, and how they (literally) build an entire world for us. The 2-part structure of the film managed to perfectly depict the depth of its characters from both inside and outside "room". Both Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay gave phenomenal performances.

    This film is extremely tender and heartwarming, but also hits you hard like a baseball bat to the head (pun intended). Its entire vibe felt like warm hug during a cold morning.

    "Short Term 12" is the perfect uplifting drama that no one asked for.

    The film was packaged to be a thriller, but it…

    ★★★★½
