I really enjoyed the film -- thought the two male leads were great and the story tragic, and all too real. How many times have two men fought for the same woman, with the charismatic/flighty one initially winning her and the safe chappy waiting in the wings? I was a little disappointed with Emily Browning's performance/character -- although pretty, 'Florence' lacked substance and personality.
I loved it. My only slight niggle was Emily Blunt's over the top posh accent. But, after a while, I warmed to its camp element. She was very arch and I loved her raunchy musical hall performance, which pne reviewer thought was disgraceful. Mary Poppins was always a flirt and rule breaker -- to me she symbolises the good in life and that includes fun and mischief.
The Room was recommended by friends. I found it flawed. I won't give away spoilers, but I found some of the developments implausible and several outcomes far too neat. On the plus side, Jacob Tremblay, who plays the boy, gives an astonishing performance for someone so young. At the other end of the scale, Joan Allen gives a wonderful, understated performance as the gracious and eternally supportive grandmother. I wasn't bored ... Although I was relieved when the action left the room! In a nutshell, I don't think the film lives up to the hype.
