Maternal love is the tie that binds throughout Room, a harrowing but rewarding glimpse into the lives of a young woman and her son held in captivity. Well, thatโ€™s where Room begins its journey, and it continues on into their struggle to weave themselves into the outside world. Much of the story examines the ugliest things we are capable of doing to each other, the explosive damage that can turn ... read more

I've heard many great things about this, but to be honest I didn't even actually know about it until it was released. The subject matter sounds disturbing, depressing, and intense. I don't know why I didn't check this out sooner. Plus to note it has quite an excellent cast. Oh Leonard Abrahamson also directed Frank which was an interesting movie itself. It seems this guy likes to deal heavily with... read more

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out but, to be honest, I thought it would be just another drama about a young woman held in captivity. Well, what I didn't expect is that it would turn out to be the best movie in this genre. Indeed, the whole thing was just so intense and heartbreaking and I'm pretty sure I will keep thinking about it dur... read more

Movie Maniac posted a review 2 years, 2 months ago

“"Room" is the story of a captive woman doing her best to maintain her child's innocence and give him a sense of normalcy in spite of the dire circumstances they are in. The titular room and other items and things are subject to personification because of the child's mother's attempts to create an illusory world in a hopeless situation. As a result simple things to the casual viewer take on an added weight and meaning as the film progresses. This alone would make for a riveting subject matter but this film is far more ambitious in it's undertaking.

Indeed, an hour into the proceedings the film resolves the superficial side of this dilemma, after a heartbreaking peak into the lives of the two leads (an excellent Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay), only to show us the true psychologica” read more
