“Room” is an adaptation film made on the novel written by Emma donoghue. A well written and directed movie which depicted the the intricate detailed elements of the book so well. The movie starrs brie larson who plays the mother of Jacob tremblay, who brings about a change when he turns five years old.
The movie begins with Jack and his Ma (Brie larson) day to day life inside a room. Jack sees the room as his only perception of the world and everything that defines the outside world as fairytale. He is never made to feel like there could be anything outside the four walls that he and ma live in.
Jack doesn’t know that his Ma was kidnapped when she was 17 years old and has been held captive since then. He doesn’t know that his Ma is being raped everyday by her abductor and himself is a product of the relationship ma has with the man that comes in every night and goes for the day.
Brie who plays the mother of jack. She is a protective mother. She makes sure Jack doesn’t know what is going on around. She keeps him locked up in the cupboard so that her abductor doesn’t get him involved. She tries her best to keep him away from what is reality.
But, then when Jack turns 5 years old. His Ma makes a big decision. She tells him what the reality of things is because she knows he is smart and he is old enough to know the truth. Jack doesn’t believe her. He gets angry. He says there is no outside world aside the room. But, she begs him to realise.
Later on, Jack helps ma to get found by the police. He gets them out. He sees the reality of what is outside those four walls. He understood what ma told him.
But, Ma becomes sick. She goes through a mental breakdown. She tries to kill herself. Jack becomes her strength and gets her out of the dark room she got stuck with again. He saves her.
This movie is such an amazing one. It’s script, directing and actors help bring emma donoghue’s book to life. In each detail, dialogues and expression….it’s one of my movie suggestions. A must watch. I might have given too much of information. But, to those who still feel like I haven’t spilled much of the gist. Do go watch it.
If you have any movie suggestions that you would want me to write a review on or just for me to view it.
Do comment and give me a list of must watch movies. It doesn’t matter if it’s not recent. I still would check it out.
