Room (2016)

room“Hello, Jack. Thanks for saving our little girl.”

What is it about?

Joy and her son are trapped in a room together. We don’t know why and we don’t know how. A man occasionally brings them essentials but always remembers to lock the door. Now that Jack turns 5, Joy comes up with a plan to escape.

Who’s in it?

Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay.

Why should I watch it?

+ Oscar nominated performance by Brie Larson
+ The kid’s acting isn’t too bad either
+ Great story
+ Brings up interesting psychological subjects
+ Moving at times
+ Feels real

Why shouldn’t I watch it?

– Slows down a little bit halfway in
– Based on a book, so book is automatically better
– Can be used in an argument by  anti-abortionists

Anything else?

It’s much better going into this movie not knowing what it is about. Don’t watch the trailer because like Kim Kardashian, it shows waaaay too much than it should.

9/10
