"The jury was unanimously delighted by 'Short Term 12'. Destin Cretton succeeded in making that rare work of art that tells a sad story in a manner that is not only suspenseful, but also as complex as its colourful characters necessitate. He discovered faces that leave a distinct impression, actors who capture the empathy of the audience and hold it to the very end."
