    Room is about a boy and his mother being held captive and confined into a room. Once they escape, facing the real world will be their greatest challenge. Brie Larson delivers a remarkable performance as "Ma." This is one of the best movies of 2015 in my mind.

    When this movie came out last year I did not have the chance to go see it. However, when I rented it at Redbox I fell in love with the movie and I had to buy it. This item/movie is great because it has a nice cover peace/slip cover to it. It also comes with a nice slipcover and a digital copy code. These are small things I like about the package, but the biggest thing I like about the movie is the story. The crazy thing is that nobody talked about it and I never saw a trailer for it. It took one of my favorite reviewers to mention it and when I saw that it got nominated for an Oscar that is when i knew i had to watch it. In the end, the movie has a topic about abuse but if you can get through that and enjoy the prosperity moments then you will definitely love this movie!

    Room is a drama thriller, but not in the traditional sense of the word. It deals with a dark subject matter and the first half of the film can be quite disturbing. Yet director Lenny Abrahamson has adapted the best-selling novel with grace and grandeur. Here is a film so artistically unique and deviant, full of genuine emotion thanks to two outstanding performances, that isn't afraid to take risks and surprise at every turn. Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay both give spectacular performances that we'll definitely see more of them in the future! The best actors are the ones able to transport you into their characters' own universes, no matter how isolated from society they happen to be. Larson and Tremblay both have a tremendous range of emotional ability and are able to sell you on their story not just for two hours, but for an entire lifetime. With Room, Lenny Abrahamson goes the extra mile with his direction. The film asks us to examine how we view the world and how this viewpoint is shaped by our nurtured upbringing. The result is a breathtaking experience brought to life, one you won't soon forget. Overall, my final verdict 5/5 Stars!

    Brie Larson's performance in this film is beyond question one of the best performances I've seen by a woman in a long time. Room is a must-watch masterpiece, that is deep, lively, and thoughtful, and will undoubtedly room you in its infinite wisdom with only a few characters and limited space.

    This was a great movie and eye opening at the same time. Brie was very deserving of her Oscar and the little boy was phenomenal! Shows you a real issue that most people don't ever think about.

    This is one of the best movies of 2015. It was nominated for best film and Brie Larson (the main character) won best actress at the Academy Awards. If you haven't checked it out yet than you should buy this. Always buy blu-rays not dvds.
