Dir. Lenny Abrahamson | USA | 2015 | 118 mins
Cast:| Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Sean Bridgers, William H. Macy, Joan Allen

Lenny Abrahamson’s (Garage, What Richard Did) searing adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s Booker-shortlisted bestseller Room is hotly tipped for awards success, aided by a superb performance from Brie Larson. It’s a story of a mother and child held captive for years; a haunting story all too resonant with real-life incidents in recent years. Larson (Short Term 12) plays Ma, newcomer Jacob Tremblay her five-year-old son who has never known life outside the room. Exploring the complex psychology of long-term captivity, Abrahamson shows how when the pair devise a precarious escape plan they will face both wonder and horror in the outside world.
