Movie Night

So tonight I watched Short Term 12 which is an amazing movie. I believe it was very under appreciated on account of I hadn’t heard of it and it came out quite awhile ago. (And yes, my boyfriend and I are very up-to-date on movies.) It follows real life struggles kids go through and how things from childhood can haunt you into your adult life. I feel like the movie industry and society in general feels these themes are a threat. Hence why this film probably wasn’t talked about much. I’m not sure why though, we’ve all gone through struggles in life and will continue to do so. It’s pretty much a given being human. So why is everyone so scared of being yourself and relating to dark shit? I’m not really sure, but I think this needs to change, and mental awareness plus healthy ways of dealing with things need to be presented as okay and something everyone could use. What are your thoughts?
