I fell in love.
I don't do this very often (the last time being in 2012) but Brie Larson most definitely fits the post's title for her performance in Short Term 12. The film itself suffers from relying on cliches and sentimentality but Larson's performance roots the film in a reality the film too often fights against. She has a natural charm and I can't wait to see her work with Lenny Abrahamson in Room.
