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.
Plot: Held captive for 7 years in an enclosed space, a woman and her young son finally gain their freedom, allowing the boy to experience the outside world for the first time.

“I want a different story!”
That line and the scene it’s taken from is quintessential to what this movie is about — at least to me.
To me, this is so much **not** about being abducted and trapped in a room but about the apparent pointlessness of being, about coming to terms with it and understanding and accepting that any meaning that is to be found, comes from within ourselves. It’s also about moving on, about love and parenthood (“Can I?” “There’s nothing left.”), and just… Well, humanity and love.
It reminds me of the beautiful relationship between father and son in The Road (the book — I don’t remember if the movie conveys this relationship very well, but I do remember the beauty of it in the book). The relationship between mother and son in this movie is heartbreakingly beautiful as well.
Also, I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen a child perform this well in a movie. I have a feeling I’ve seen better, but I can’t remember having seen better.
I thought this would be a horror movie (I don’t read synopsises or reviews or watch trailers before watching a movie), instead I was moved to tears again and again. But **not** disappointed.
Brilliant. Watch it.
> Discovering a whole new world beyond the 4 walls.
We all know the German folk tale ‘Rupanzel’, and this is a similar kind with entirely different motive. All the above it is not a fairy tale set in the medieval period, but inspired by many real events of the present era. A couple of years ago I saw a German movie called ‘3096 Days’ based on the true story. When I heard of this movie is being made, at first obviously I remembered that title, but after seeing the poster alone convinced me not the same. Automatically the expectations rose, and now it’s got the 4 Oscars nominees, including the best motion picture.
The both halves of the movie were entirely different from each other like the two sets of story, but the core of the theme remains same. The first half was a crucial part that takes place completely in a single room with a minimal cast. It does not go through the intro, just begins to tell the story like it’s already happening and you might take a few minutes to realise the state of condition. The next half is a reaction to what happened in the previous. And again this is also an important storytelling section because like the title, it was not all about the room, but beyond that 4 walls and its roof and floor like how it affected the mother and son.
> “If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
The movie does not talk about the crime feature at all. Not even considered to reveal behind the motive. So the other side mystery remains as it is. The whole narration was one sided, everything was seen through the eyes of a five year old boy. He begins with the line ‘Once upon a time…’ like a fairy tale, because it is to him and with his cute little performance along with Brie Larson’s, the movie briefs their struggle for freedom.
It was a too casual opening, like nothing bad is really happening, just they’re weird people or maybe agoraphobia, except they’re not. You know when we say we love to be kids again to escape this complicated adult life, sometimes we won’t mean it except it was a normal reaction to the situation we’re in. But what if a five year old boy wants to be four again when her mother thinks its time to him know what the real world looks like. Yeah, that’s a too much to take in for a young boy, but that’s the best chance they had to break free from the psycho who put her mother in that room.
> “When I was small, I only knew small things.
> But now I’m five, I know everything.”
It was a tidy place, but the camera angles were impressive. I know it was shot in a studio with a wide open space behind the camera, but that does not the viewpoint in the actual story. When the first half ends, it is an indication of the good parts are over, at least that’s what I thought of, but what came after was the unexpected expansion in narration. Usually most of the similar tales end in that part itself like for example ‘Prisoners’ and the rest is understandable stuff that won’t be shown.
When a tale had a ending like ‘happily ever after’, still some people desire for it to continue a few more minutes to know how happy really they are and that’s what this film’s second half. Remember, most of the similar themes have multiple perspectives, like how victim’s family is coping with, cops are pursuing the suspect, abductor’s plans and motive, and captives struggle. Like I said it was all about what a mother and her son goes through those years in captivity and after that.
There were some suspicious characters and events like I had a bad feeling over the doctor’s soft talking, also the mother-son’s master plan when in captive. Those are tiny diversions to viewers assume differently against where the story is heading. It is all about the mother and son’s mental trauma, especially for the little boy similar to when Tarzan is in a big town for the first time leaving behind his other life. It was a perfect pace as well, neither hurried nor a slow development. The movie was a big break for many, especially for the Irish director, and Brie Larson and of course for the kid. Definitely one of the finest movie of 2015 and a must watch.
A tense and compelling film
Lenny Abrahamson’s Room opens in a 10 x 10 room that has no windows, a locked door, and no light other than that provided by an overhead skylight. Jack (Jacob Tremblay), a slight five-year old boy with hair down to his shoulders wakes up each morning as he has all his life, saying hello to his world. He says hello, not to the sun or the grass outside his front door where he can run and laugh and play but only to the objects which is all his world consists of: the lamp, the sink, the plant, the refrigerator. His only friend is a mouse that he feeds with some pleasure.
Not that he lacks for companionship. Ma (Brie Larson) is with him and their endless days consist of cooking, reading, and watching TV where Jack is told that what he sees on the screen is not real, only pretend. All he knows of the world is what he sees in front of his eyes. Old Nick (Sean Bridgers) brings food and other household items but when he comes, Jack has to hide in his wardrobe, out of sight. Ma, we find out, has been kept prisoner and used for sex by the hulking man who comes every night and we know that Jack is a result of his mother’s rape. Jack is the focus of the film and we see everything from his point of view, with the help of his sometime narration but we can also get into his mother’s mind and feel her pain and live her dreams.
There is never any doubt of his mother’s love though the obvious strain of keeping herself from crying out every minute is painfully obvious. To Jack, she is the center of his world and his reason for being. When the second half of the film takes a surprising turn and shifts 180 degrees, Jack and Ma are not prepared for what awaits them. Even when an alternative is suggested as possible, he doesn’t want to hear anything about a different world with blue sky and rivers and trees. Room is a tense and compelling film in which Brie Larson more than fulfills the brilliance that she showed in Short Term 12 and should make her an Oscar contender. Tremblay is also superb.
He lives his character and makes him come alive, even though he is only nine years old. Supporting roles by Joan Allen and William H. Macy also contribute to the film’s second half but it is always Larson and Tremblay that carry the day. The film is not mawkish or sentimental even though the soaring score by Stephen Rennicks comes close. While there are has some plot implausibilities, the film is a tribute to the resiliency and the dedicated love of a parent for their child. It is also a teaching experience. Like many who are walled off from each other and think the box they are in is all there is, the film can give us the combination to open the locked door, if we take the risk to turn the key.
