As a young foster care facility staffer, Grace (Brie Larson) sees it as her job to be personally invested in the lives of the at-risk kids in her care─refusing to bow to cynicism or suffer bureaucracy when passion and dedication are key to her calling. Those traits, as well as her own complex past, fuel Grace's own emotional crisis when she bonds with a troubled new arrival. Smart and sensitive blend of powerful drama and sly humor co-stars Kaitlyn Dever, John Gallagher, Jr., and Keith Stanfield. 96 min.
