    The terms emotionally exhausting, frighteningly real and beautifully acted are not common descriptors for an average film, and Room is most definitely not an average film.

    Like little Jack's mother, we rant and scream for him to get away from the bad man. We smile when he learns new things. We come to understand that freedom might just truly be another word for nothing left to lose as Joplin used to say. And that maybe we give so much of ourselves to protect others that we forget to ask others to help us when we need it.

    Room is a near-perfect film. Hard, yet cathartic. Emotional, yet oddly stoic. Difficult, yet free.

    Brie Larson is brilliant. Little Jacob Tremblay is so astoundingly good we forget that he's not real. That seems appropriate for a film that touches on disbelief in a different world.

    It would have been the greatest cameo of all-time if Tommy Wiseau played the guy who kept Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay locked-up in the room. 4 years 9 months ago
