Room is a MUST. SEE. Before watching this film, I was curious as to how it would keep the viewer engaged for almost two hours. I’m not a big fan of watching trailers before seeing the movie because they sometimes give too much away, so all I knew going into it was that it was about a woman and her son held captive in a room. How interesting was the movie going to be if basically the entire thing takes place in a tiny room? Well, the answer to that is very interesting. Even though not all scenes were extremely intense, I was at the edge of my seat throughout the whole movie. The viewer can’t help but feel curious, saddened, worried, and anxious about the fate of the woman and her young son. Will they survive the wrath of their tormentor? How would they react to the real world outside of the four walls that have confined them for so long? While watching this movie, you fall in love with the adorable young boy, Jack, right from the start and would do anything to see him see the real world and to see his mother return to the life she knew before being abducted. Watching the mother and her son suffer from their poor treatment, malnutrition, and scary living conditions is very unsettling, but it causes you to stay alert the whole movie in hopes of a happy ending.
