When I first read Emma Donoghue’s Book “Room” I fully cried and bawled my eyes out, because this story is just beyond sad. When I heard that there was a movie coming out I was destined to see it. TIFF annoaunced that they would be having it in their theatre’s and I nearly lost my mind. I have to admit I’m a lucky girl when it comes to watching movies and television shows early, but this one was a hard one to get into to.
I basically begged a co-worker to take me with her and thank GOD her friend couldn’t make it.
As soon as I got into the theatre I had tissues ready as I already knew the story.
Can I just say this movie was absolutely beautiful. The filming, the acting, the absolute horrific situation they’re turned into a beautiful story, UGH definitely the best movie I’ve seen at TIFF… although I have only seen 3 haha. Those reviews will come out soon.
Brie Larson, if you don’t win an Oscar for this roll then the Oscars are fixed!!! You were absolutely breathtaking. No one else could of played “Ma” better. I can’t believe this woman went from playing Envy Adam in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World to this absolutely terrified and strong mother. Now that’s an actor.
Jacob Tremblay… what an amazing child actor. When I was thinking of who could possibly play this role I didn’t think it was possible. Fiona Weir (the casting director) is a genius. Then again it could of been the parents who got him to audition. But damn Fiona better win an Emmy for Outstanding Casting… cause this child was perfection.

From a Chick’s Perspective 5/5. – The best movie I’ve ever seen at TIFF. I’ve been obsessed with this book for so long that I am so thankful that the movie came out as wonderful as it did. What an amazing cast, amazing acting… It’s a beautiful and horrific story. I can’t WAIT for all of you to see it!!!
