Room is about two people. Joy (Brie Larson) and her son Jack (Jacob Tremblay.) Joy has been held captive for seven years. She is locked in a small room in a shed with only a skylight. She has been raped by a man called Old Nick and given birth to their son, Jack.
Jack now 5 years old has grown up in this captive world, every morning he addresses the thing in the room. His only view of the outside world is what he can see from the skylight.
However Room is not a movie about a mother and child locked in a room while Old Nick abuses them. It is about Joy planning their escape and then trying to adapt to a new life with her mother, now split from her father. Her dad meanwhile has difficulties accepting Jack.
The film is rather bland. Of course the first portion of mother and son living in such distressing conditions is harrowing but Jack looks a little bit too healthy apart from his long hair. Joy only seems lost when she tries to fit in to her new circumstances once she has left the room.
The film was rather underwhelming and uneventful. Jacob Tremblay gives a good performance.
ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack, a spirited 5-year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted mother. Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical--they are trapped--confined to a 10-by-10-foot space that Ma has euphemistically named Room. Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life. But as Jack's curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma's resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.
