Number 6 of the 8 Oscar nominated best picture of 2015. Room was a simple, engaging, suspenseful, and heartbreaking tale. Brie Larson has been gaining steam as an actress and I believe with Room, she proved herself. Even more surprising, Jacob Tremblay who plays the boy is an outstanding actor for a child. I couldn’t help be amazed on how he had convinced me. I haven’t read the book this is based on and judging by the amount of reviews telling us how close it was to the source, I’ll just believe the reports. To imagine what it would be like when all you ever known is life inside a shed, or as the boy calls it Room, then coming out into the world having absolutely no clue what you are seeing. I would gladly cosign this film, and I believe it to be very worthy of its Oscar Nomination of best picture and best actress in Brie Larson. I realize it’s probably at the end of its theater run as it came out in the fall, but if you can see it, take that opportunity. If not, get it when it comes out on bluray. It is rated R for language but it’s not excessive or vulgar. And there’s a couple suggested adult moments but nothing is shown and situation is offscreen.
