Audience Reviews for Room

    Fantastic acting and a great script make this one of the most unusual films of recent years. One shouldn't spoil too much about the plot, but it says a lot that a film can easily have its climax in the middle of the story and still lose no intensity in the second half, easily keeping the audience's attention for the aftermath. Engaging, moving and honest.

    It's a wonderful story bolstered by two very strong leads.

    This film is a crazy film that aspiring directors and screenwriters should look up to if they would like to create a low budget film. This film for the most part is filmed in two places. Though Brie Larson's performance lead the film to be a critical success it's the performance of Jacob Trembly that is very impressive. The changes this child has to face is truly fascinating to watch on screen and is a great film.

    In a year of gut-wrenching dramas [Spotlight, Carol, The danish girl, The end of the tour, etc..] this is definitely the biggest emotional roller coaster of them all. This is a very important film to watch, nevertheless; with brilliant performances from both its leads, especially the young Jacob Tremblay who, as far as I'm concerned, gives the finest/most incontestably underrated performance of the year.
