Room is the entire world to five-year-old Jack, but for his Ma it’s a prison, one from which she’s desperate to free her child, whatever the cost. Stellar performances from Jacob Tremblay and Brie Larson are the emotional engine behind this riveting adaptation of the best-selling novel by Emma Donoghue. Ireland 2015, 118 min Director Lenny Abrahamson
