ROOM

Introduced by Emma Donoghue

(2015) dir Lenny Abrahamson w/Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Sean Bridgers, Joan Allen, William H. Macy [118 min; DCP]
ahtd-290Anchored by a remarkable, Oscar-winning performance by Brie Larson, ROOM tells the heartbreaking but ultimately uplifting story of inquisitive 5-year-old Jack (Tremblay) and his loving mother (Larson). Jack and his Ma are pretty typical – except for the fact that they live their lives trapped in a 10-by-10 windowless shed, held captive by a man they call Old Nick. But, when they enact a daring plan to escape, they face what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world. Author Emma Donoghue adapts from her own international best-seller.

“It’s hard to think of a movie adaptation of a book that feels truer and more loyal to its source than Room.” – Sophie Gilbert, The Atlantic

“Room is astonishing: It transmutes a lurid, true-crime situation into a fairy tale in which fairy tales are a source of survival.” – David Edelstein, Vulture

“One of the best movies of the decade.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
