Movie Info

Julia Barker lives in Houston, is married with two children, and barely makes ends meet. She also has begun having visions of a room -- stark, vacuous and industrial. After waking up from a minor car accident near George Bush Airport, Julia follows her vision to New York City. Once there, she searches for the room, which insinuates itself more and more forcefully into her consciousness.

Gadually it slips into the indie paradigm of an alienated soul rushing into darkness, climaxing with a semiabstract montage sequence that's more rhetorical than dramatic.

It ... may be the longest 75-minute film in the history of cinema -- there was a clock check 25 minutes in, after thinking 'this has got to be almost over.'

Expertly moody and foreboding, Room is somewhat less than the sum of its parts, but is nonetheless compelling viewing along the way.

Williams gives a superb performance that recalls Ellen Burstyn's in Darren Aronfsky's much-praised Requiem for a Dream.

A small-scale indie with bountiful ambitions, this resourceful debut ballasts a great deal of conceptual idiosyncrasy ... with strict observations of personality, behavior and the textures of space.

Kyle Henry's Room is one of those rare American indies that confidently and successfully propose their own narrative logic, drawing viewers into a mental puzzle that may not contain a single clear solution.

Defying do not enter, in dead end US culture.

A performance de Williams é corajosa e intensa, mas o diretor-roteirista cria um drama existencialista pós-11 de Setembro bobo sobre o constante estado de medo do norte-americano médio e sua busca desesperada por algum tipo de válvula de escape.

Henry's film is beautifully shot and extraordinarily well acted by Williams, whose face alone says everything about the plight of working mothers who can no longer make ends meet.

Cyndi Williams's performance in Kyle Henry's Room is a searing articulation of post-traumatic stress disorder.

It isn't an easy film, but the world's already got plenty of easy and easily digestible films. Nervy and confounding pictures, however, we could use more of.

Writer-director Kyle Henry's debut feature is a tedious tease that parades assorted sensations and signifiers past the audience for nearly an hour and a half before sputtering out in a rush of incomprehensible visual noise.
