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.

Critic Reviews for Room

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (4)

  • 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.

    Great suspense throughout punctuated by a somewhat inconclusive and unsatisfying ending.
