Film Review: Room

DIRECTOR: Lenny Abrahamson STARRING: Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Sean Bridgers, Wendy Crewson, Sandy McMaster, Matt Gordon, Amanda Brugel, Joe Pingue, Joan Allen, Zarrin Darnell-Martin, William H. Macy IRELAND/CANADA 2015


Based on the globally acclaimed bestseller by Emma Donoghue, Room is deeply emotional and a touching movie about the love between a mother and her child under the most harrowing and tragic of circumstances. Tackling themes like captivity, isolation and boundless love, both Jack and his Ma (Brie Larson) created their own world, where for 7 years Ma and little Jack (for 5 years) were trapped and confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space. Room is one of the most powerful movies of the last few years, part fairy-tale and part-thriller, a challenging and heartbreaking movie, well detailed and full of psychological precision. Once again, Brie Larson performance goes direct into your heart and for Oscar!
