This film made me laugh and cry. Based on a novel, Room centres around a young woman who has been held captive in a shed for several years with her five-year-old son, and their attempts to escape. Brie Larson definitely deserves the Oscar for best actress and young Jacob Tremblay gives one of the best performances from a child ever. The film is suspenseful and also a fascinating look at the human psyche, especially as Tremblay's naive character starts to learn the truth about the world beyond their room.
