Director: Destin Cretton

With Brie Larson, John Gallagher Jr., Kaitlyn Dever, Stephanie Beatriz

“A film about scars, some physical, others emotional, but all examined with a sensitivity and understanding that cuts deep.”
—Variety

Sincere and emotional but never sentimental, this drama, based on the director’s real-life experience, follows a tenacious young counselor named Grace (United States of Tara’s Brie Larson, in a soul-baring breakthrough performance) who works with her long-term boyfriend Mason (John Gallagher Jr., The Newsroom) in a halfway house for troubled teens. More than just caretakers, they foster relationships with the at-risk patients that are far more therapeutic than their requisite treatments. With handheld camerawork by Brett Pawlak, this extension of the director’s award-winning 2008 short film of the same name is bracingly honest, refreshingly original, and a singular achievement.

Producers: Asher Goldstein, Maren Olson, Joshua Astrachan, Ron Najor
Director of Photography: Brett Pawlak
Editor: Nat Sanders
