Movie Review by Kristin: ROOM
Directed By: Lenny Abrahamson
Written By: Emma Donoghue
Starring: Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen, Sean Bridgers, William H. Macy
SYNOPSIS: Held captive for years in an enclosed space, a woman (Brie Larson) and her 5-year-old son (Jacob Tremblay) finally gain their freedom, allowing the boy to experience the outside world for the first time.
Wow. Words can’t explain the feeling I had while watching this movie. Well…maybe claustrophobic. lol.
Jacob Tremblay is the cutest little thing! I became a fan after seeing all of his appearances on TV lately and, after watching this movie, I can see big things happening in his career as he grows older. Him and Brie Larson had great chemistry as a mother/son pair.
The way the whole movie played out was incredible. From the love Larson’s character, Joy, had for her son, to their escape, and attempting to adapt (and re-adapt) to life outside of Room. Everything about this movie was excellent…especially the acting by all involved.
You’re taken inside of this tiny room where Joy and Jack have been held captive for years. This room is all little Jack knows, so when Joy begins to tell him the outside world is actually real, she knows it’s time to plan their escape. It’s a heartwarming movie that really makes you appreciate what you have.
Definitely a must watch! ROOM is available on Digital HD, DVD and BluRay now!
