But they’re even better placed back-to-back. -- Grade: B+ROOM is several things by turn: creepy, frightening, exhilarating and then frightening and exhilarating all over again.3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A]n intensely felt cinematic experience....ROOM is a soul-searing celebration of the impenetrable bond that endures even under the most unbearable of circumstances between a parent and a child.Jack’s unboundedness, the joy he expresses with Ma, the room and their meager possessions -- his laughter and delight and kidness -- are visceral and pleasurable....[Mr. Tremblay's] presence in the movie has a crystalline purity...Brie Larson plays Ma, and it is a raw, brave and unforgettable performance.3.5 stars out of 4 -- All you need to know is that the performances of Larson and Tremblay will blow you away....ROOM is a small movie, but its impact is enormous.[I]t contains an expansive sense of compassion and humanism thanks to the sensitive direction of Abrahamson...[T]he film is full of life, and that the drama doesn’t flag once the mother and child leave their prison.4 stars out of 5 -- [W]ithin its tight confines Lenny Abrahamson, with a script by Emma Donoghue, finds warmth and hope. It is, against all odds, uplifting.5 stars out of 5 -- A thoughtful, at times poetic meditation on how one endures and makes bearable a nightmarish dilemma.Held captive for nearly a decade in a tiny shed converted into a living space, a single mother (Brie Larson) and her five-year-old son (Jacob Tremblay) break away from their captor after a daring escape. The mother and son are thrown back into society after years of isolation and struggle to adjust to life outside the room. Lenny Abrahamson directs this deeply emotional drama based on the novel by Emma Donoghue.
