Room (trailer)

Room is one of the many books becoming movies in 2015, based on the novel Room by Emma Donoghue, and it’s about a 5-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) being cared for by “Ma,” played by Brie Larson.

To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it’s where he lives with his Ma as they learn and read and eat and sleep and play. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits. 

Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it’s not enough…not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, one that relies on her young son’s bravery and a lot of luck. What she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work. 

Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, Room is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another

I have to be honest, I don’t know if I want to read the book – it’s not really my thing – but the trailer looks freaking amazing, and I want this to come out NOW! Check it out.

    I knew that the book existed, I’ve seen the trailer and therefore knew about the movie but somehow my brain did not make the connection hahaha but yeah, I don’t want to read this story, but I’ll probably watch the movie.

    Oh this has been on my TBR for ages and the trailer looks so good! I will definitely read it now before the movie comes out! :p

    I read the book, and was just absolutely… That book BROKE me. I understand why you might not want to read it, though–it’s very emotionally charged, and the subject matter is so, so hard to digest. I had to put it down several times to clear my head.

    The movie also looks amazing; I’ll have to keep watch for it in the future! I hadn’t realized it was even being made into film (oops!)

    I will definitely be watching the movie. It looks really well done.

    I loved the book. Could not put it down. I am strangely drawn to emotionally charged / disturbing books. This was tame in comparison to some books I have read.

    I am kind of surprised though that they gave away so much of the story line in the trailer. In the book, most of the suspense is tied up in whether their plan of escape will actually work.

    I’m delighted for Emma Donoghue though. I love to see irish writers do well xx

    I have been pretty interested in reading Room – I had no idea it was becoming a movie!!! I want to read it like NOW!! And then I want to go see that amazing movie!

    I will definitely need to read the book before I watch the movie, the intense topic and subject matter means I have to steel myself on paper before even attempting to watch it! It sounds like a difficult read though, so I think I’ll have to prepare myself for months haha.
