Short Term 12 (2013)

In writer/director Destin Daniel Cretton's drama about a foster-care home for troubled teens:

  • home resident Marcus' (Keith Stanfield) rap song: "So You Know What It's Like," that he said had "a lot of 'f--ks' in it" - he was almost 18 and about to leave the foster home, and would then be forced to fend for himself in the big world that had already treated him with abuse and indifference: ("It don't matter now, damn near 18. All the pretty pictures in my f--kin' head is faded. And when I think about that trick that raised me, I think about sick, because the bitch is crazy. F--k that bitch, nigga, f--k that pain. Your body's in a ditch inside this turned up brain. I mean, I can't see how you claim it, you being ma? Doctors snatched me out the snatch of pure evil with eagle claws. Ho ho ho, slut, f--k the way you want it. Got your young, dumb son pitching pigeons for money. I mean, it's colder than the bitch when it's sunny. Blows raining down on the glow. Got the nerve to tell me you love me? I said, again? Again? Sell it, again. Bitch, I'm 10. Let me go outside and function with friends. You say you ma? You mother? You the father-f--king queen? I say, all right, I love her so I flip it again. No, not this time, bitch, because I'm stronger than you. Not this time, bitch, swinging harder than you. No, not this time, bitch, you ain't leave me a choice. You just a body in a ditch in the brain of a boy. All f--ked up now, damn near 18. All the pictures in my past ain't never fading. I'm always wishing for something amazing, but when your life is s--t then it ain't no trading. So put me in your books, so you know what it's like to live a life not knowing what a normal life's like. Put a label on my head so you know what it's like to live a life not knowing what a normal life's like. Look into my eyes so you know what it's like. Look into my eyes so you know what it's like. Look into my eyes so you know what it's like to live a life not knowing what a normal life's like")
