I saw “Room” the other night and I have not been able to stop thinking about the film since. It had such a profound affect on me. The movie is based on Emma Donoghue’s best-selling book by the same name. It’s a story of a young woman imprisoned for years in a single room in a tiny shed and the young son who was born to her there and knows no other world. I know…why would you want to see a film that sounds so incredibly depressing, right? Parts of the film were definitely difficult to watch. But the movie is less about the horror of the situation and more about the power of love- especially a mothers love for her child. I don’t want to give too much more away because the film takes so many beautiful twists and turns.
It’s honestly a must see.
