Warning: do not watch when PMSing or pregnant or are experiencing any other hormonal or emotional event in your life. This movie made me cry time and time again. It was beautiful and I can relate to it a lot even if I'm not in the same situation. The themes and messages are great.
I was 6 when Matthew Shepard was murdered and I didn't know much about the case but I'm glad this film taught me about it from the victim's perspective. The story is beautiful and you can see how even all these years later, how Matt still touches the ones he loves and the entire American community.
Oh my god. Not only is the story of Nick Yannis insane, Nick Yannis himself is a phenomenal story teller. Him telling his story has me gripped from the beginning and I didn't want it to end. I'd love to sit down and have a conversation with him.
While still very interesting, it seems like it was a bunch of old information rehashed. I like that they had information about the most recent developments but I didn't feel like this was anything special for those who followed the entire case.
I appreciate movies based on books when they take the book and visualize the author's work rather than changing it. "Room" has certainly done this. I loved the book and now I loved the movie. Seeing a visual depiction of the novel was disturbing due to the content of the book and I had to pause the movie a couple times because it make me feel sick. The actors casted for the movie are great and I'm impressed at Jacob Tremblay for playing Jack's role. I can't imagine the role is an easy one for such a young child and he did an amazing job.
