Enjoy an incredible film from an astounding book,
Room. A child, Jack, is born and spends several years held captive with his mother in a hidden "room," while she plots their escape to a world Jack cannot imagine. The love (and resilience) between mother and son endures through the nightmare of circumstances. Based on Emma Donoghue's award-winning novel and nominated for four Academy Awards, the film enthralls as it questions what we really need to live, how strong we could be in unimaginable conditions, and where contentment lies when troubles simply change their appearance.
