Film Posts 38 – Room

Room spent little time in our local multiplex, hurriedly shouldered aside for 15 showings a day of the latest teen crowd-pleaser, so we saw this in the lovely Old Market Hall in Shrewsbury.

The problem with writing about Room is that it’s almost impossible to do without major spoilers, and I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t write about the plot.

The film creates a great deal of tension, and some real heart-in-the-mouth moments. The final section feels like a very different film, although it flows directly and naturally from what has gone before, and takes you to a different place from where you would have expected.

Man, this is difficult to write. Look, it’s a very good film, with a couple of outstanding performances (Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay are both brilliant). Go and see it – though it’s taken so long for me to get round to writing this post, if you haven’t seen it already  you’re probably going to watch it at home.
