United States | 2013 | Destin Daniel Cretton
If there were any justice, Brie Larson would be nominated for an Oscar for her electrifying performance in this wrenching, moving, woefully under-seen film that has a 98% “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes.com. She plays a twenty-something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers, where she must quell the demons of her unpredictable, volatile charges—in addition to her own.
96 min. Blu-ray.
