Having been lukewarm on the book, I stayed away from this film for a long time, but man, am I glad I watched this. This tugs on ALL your heart strings.

ROOM feels like salt in a wound and is somehow still a triumph. a narrative like this could easily prove too heavy to carry, but Larson and Tremblay are an incredible force to be reckoned with.

Not too schlocky for me, rather too painful. It is rare, I hope, but there are real "Old Nicks" and it is beyond heartbreaking to consider their victims.

What if all you knew was a prison, but you did not know it was a prison? Consider Jacks perspective throughout the film. Excellent story, acting.

This is such a beautiful and heartbreaking story. I've seen this film many times over the years, and am so excited to see it on Kanopy! Jacob Tremblay is one of a kind - so much talent for someone so young. And he's so cute!
