About ROOM

The mother (Ma) and her son (Jack) have been living in a room unbeknown to the outside world for years.  Ma wants her 5 year old son Jack to experience climbing in the trees, playing outdoors and everything the world has to offer, but for that to happen they need to escape.


When you’ve been living in a 10 foot square room all of your life, the world is a pretty scary place.  It takes more than a little getting used to when you are just 5 years old.

If you like your cinema a little less sci-fi than Star Wars I think this film is going to be worth getting a babysitter for.  It’s bound to leave an impression on you as it unravels the trauma of being kept in captivity and how the human spirit can prevail.

In the meantime here is a taster of the film, which is set to be one of the best to hit the cinemas in 2016.  It’s already received 3 Golden Globe nominations for Best Drama, Best Actress and Best Screenplay and it’s only the beginning of the awards season.

ROOM Giveaway

  75. lindat4683 says:

    Sherlock holmes is what I like
    To find out who murdered the victim that night
    So many different characters to choose one is so hard
    All we know is the victim was caught off guard
    Perhaps it’s the gardener with his so many tools
    Perhaps it’s the owner with his so many rules
    You never know until it’s the end
    And then you find out it was just his friend
