ROOM DVD Review and Giveaway


Today 9th May is 2016 is the release date for the multi award winning ROOM on DVD and Blueray  I am a huge fan of the book which I will definitely be reading again and Stuart and I went to see the film in the cinema back in February on our anniversary. Directed by Academy Award® nominated Lenny Abrahamson (with a screenplay by Emma Donoghue that she adapted from her best-selling novel, ROOM stars Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen, William H. Macy  and Sean Bridgers, ROOM is one of the most highly acclaimed films of the year.

Room tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay), a spirited 5-year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted mother (Brie Larson). Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical--they are trapped--confined to a 10-by-10-foot space that Ma has euphemistically named Room. Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life. But as Jack's curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma's resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.

I find that when a book becomes a film most of the time I prefer the book however I love both the book and film both the same with ROOM. Its an emotional, powerful and gripping film even though it has a quite depressing theme the acting is brilliant from both Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay. 

Now I have the chance for one of my readers to win a copy of ROOM on DVD or Blueray.

Unknown said...

Remember watching the trailer and marking this one down as a must see when it came out on DVD. I think it's one of those deep, thoughtful films that you watch with close friends and chat over rather than a fun, big screen cinema experience...it's a keeper though!
