Media Review – Room

By Emma Donoghue

A young woman is held captive in a room for 7 years where she gives birth to her son Jack. Brie Larson won a well deserved Oscar for her portrayal of Ma. She is terrified of her captor but stays strong to protect her son. Young Jack has just turned five and shows great imagination, resilience and bravery. The room is his whole world and he has trouble visualising that anywhere else is real. This is a love story between a mother and her son and shows the value of hope and never giving up no matter how desperate the situation. Get your hankies out. 5 stars
