SHORT TERM 12 Trailer Is Too Sweet To Dislike

Get your hankies ready.

People really seemed to enjoy Short Term 12 at South by Southwest this year, and judging from this trailer it's easy to see why.

The story of two young almost lovers who take care of poor The Wire children at a foster home where everyone relearns how to love and trust one another while forever touching each other's lives sounds exactly like the kind of movie I normally try to avoid, but this modest glimpse makes me very excited to see the whole thing, naked emotional manipulation be damned.

What do you think? Am I being a big softie, or does this look genuinely affecting and sincere? Either way, I can't wait to see it when it comes out August 23.
