The title is not "A Room" or "The Room"; just "Room". Ma has been kept in Room against her will for years, Jack was born here. Room is Jack's universe, Room is what Ma dreams of; what she hasn't got.

Ma is played by Brie Larson ('Short Term 12') whose performance immediately started Oscar talks, while Jacob Tremblay as Jack gets equally loud plaudits. With the screenplay by Emma Donoghue from her own Booker-shortlisted book, Director Lenny Abrahamson has created a film which is "several things by turn: creepy, frightening, exhilarating and then frightening and exhilarating all over again" - Kenneth Turan, LA Times. One not to be missed!
