Room: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

A 24-year-old Joy (Brie Larson) and his 5-year-old son Jack (Jacob Tremblay) are both trapped inside a claustrophobic room. Held by her captor since she was 17, Joy tries to find light through the darkness and keeps a positive attitude for his son. Soon, when their planned escape succeeded, Jack tries to adjust with the surroundings, he never knew that existed while Joy recovers from the trauma that changed her life.

Last night, was the special screening of Room at SM Megamall. The film doesn't have a release date yet, and we are lucky enough to see it in time before the Academy Awards. The story was quite confusing at the start; it was also dark, dim and dull at the same time. It slowly picks up and creates a different kind of tension. Suffocating and tragic; the characters will earn your sympathy with the horrific ordeal they have been through. 

Brie Larson solidifies the entire film with her memorable performance. You'll feel the suffering of a broken mother who is trying to fix herself while trying to comfort and get strength through her son. Her acting is so authentic and believable, representing every single mother who will do anything for her child. Equally impressive is the young Jacob Tremblay, who delivers an outstanding performance. He's just so innocent and keeps up with Larson's brilliant act. They are both convincing leads and without them, the film would turn out terribly bland and boring. 

Overall, Room is a unique feature that relies heavily with their captivating stars. However, the film is really too slow and failed to sustain the psychological impact it needs to deliver. 

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 6 out of 10 stars
