Suspenseful and unexpectedly tender, Room (2015) explores the bounds of devotion preserved under the most harrowing of circumstances. The spirited 5 year-old Jack is cared for by his mother “Ma” while they carry on with typical recreational activities of games and storytelling. In contrasting reality, they are trapped; their lives confined to a windowless, 9-meter-square space they euphemistically refer to as “Room.” Consumed in their universe, stopping at nothing to ensure that Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life, “Ma” finally plans for their escape after her resilience is torn by Jack’s constant curiosity. What they soon face is a bigger reality: the real world.

Brie Larson was awarded Best Actress for her portrayal of “Ma” both at the 88th Academy Awards and 73rd Golden Globes.
