It was released in UK cinemas only 15 days into 2016, but Room is my favourite film of the year.
Synopsis: Based on the novel by Emma Donoghue, who also wrote the screenplay, Room follows the lives of Ma (Brie Larson) and her five-year-old son Jack (Jacob Tremblay), as they are held in a squalid shed which they call Room. We see the experiences of Jack as he ventures out of Room for the first time, to a range of new experiences, and the struggles of Ma as she tries to adjust to life again in the real world, after seven years of being held captive.
I urge you to seek out this amazing film if you have yet to see it, and I greatly look forward to seeing the work of Brie Larson (Ma) and Jacob Tremblay (Jack) in 2017 and beyond!
