I do love a good movie and next month sees the release of the new film from acclaimed director Lenny Abrahamson, Room. Based on the best-selling novel by Emma Donoghue, Room is the story of Jack (played by Jacob Tremblay), a five year old boy, who lives in a confined space, known as Room, with his Ma (played by Brie Larson).
Jack only knows of the life his Ma created for him. She’s lovingly raised him yet he doesn’t know of ‘normal’ life beyond the walls of Room. When Jack’s inquisitive mind begins to question their situation, Ma decides they have to escape. They risk everything to discover what exactly is beyond the walls of Room.
The film already has many brilliant reviews
“A-one-of-a-kind must see experience” – New York Post
“One of the best movies of the decade” – Chicago Sun Times
and has attracted 3 Golden Globe Nominations for Best Film, Best Actress (Brie Larson) and Best Screenplay (Emma Donoghue) so it’s set to smash the box office when it’s released on the 15th January 2016.
I’m really looking forward to the film. I have quite an inquisitive mind so I’m keen to find out if the story tells us the background behind why Jack and Ma are holed up in Room and how Ma has created a normal life for Jack in such a small, 10 foot by 10 foot room.
To celebrate the launch of the new film, Room I’ve got a bundle of official Room goodies to give away to one lucky reader of Life According to MrsShilts. The bundle includes The Room novel, movie soundtrack, movie poster and another three past releases (including Imitation Game, Rush and Blue Valentine) on DVD from Studiocanal.
The giveaway ends on Saturday 16th January 2016 and all you need to do to enter is use the widget below. Good luck!
