Both highly suspenseful and deeply emotional, Room is a unique and touching exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child. Jack (Jacob Tremblay), five, was born in captivity. The shed in which he and his Ma (Brie Larson) are confined is all he knows.
When Jack and his Ma finally escape, he is both awestruck and terrified by the outside world. His Ma, on the other hand, must face the long and difficult process of recovery after being imprisoned for so long.
Based on the novel by Emma Donoghue, who also wrote the screenplay.
