To five-year-old-Jack, Room is the world. . . It’s where he was born, it’s where he and his Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma it’s the prison where she has been held for seven years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in this eleven-by-eleven-foot space. But with Jack’s curiosity building alongside her own desperation, she knows that Room cannot contain either much longer.
“The end result is a profound work of genuine emotional heft – two hours of hope surrounded by the worst conceit imaginable. Miracles, even in a place as dire as Room, do come true.” – Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail
“Room deserves to be seen unspoiled. All you need to know is that the performances of Larson and Tremblay will blow you away.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
