Room — A softly told drama — 8*/10

  • Scenario: It is a very soft movie underlying a very harsh reality. It's difficult to really judge this piece. It's novel in a number of ways. It doesn't center around the crime, the victim, the aggressor or even the events. It centers around the boy's perception which makes it unique for this kind of story. That fact makes the rest feel a little bit empty as if there was enough meat around the bone, but I wouldn't change it, it's right as it should be. Great narration that helps understand his world. No explosive drama, just touching moments. The ugliness is slightly remote making the whole film much easier to watch. Perfect ending.
  • Known actors: Brie Larson, Joan Allen and William H. Macy.
  • Visual & sound: Very appropriate to the discovery.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Who is it for? Those looking for something different and soft in the drama range.
