Room

Drama


 

A mother and her 4 year old boy are confined to live in a small room, held hostage by their captor.

From its stark opening, "Room" creates a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, which slowly untangles during the course of this utterly heartbreaking and enthralling tale. The dark premise is only a launch-pad to the true heart of the story: a beautifully realised relationship between a broken mother and her curious son. We're granted a thoughtful insight, especially through the eyes of the little boy, whose mind is imagined and captured in extraordinary fashion. Exploring these themes of freedom and assimilation in a such a relatable and poignant way make it a true triumph. Make room.
