Oh god. If you read Emma Donoghue’s Room a couple years back you were probably left destroyed. The novel, and now film, follows a young mother who raises the five-year-old son of her abductor in a garden shed. She raises him oblivious to the outside world until they miraculously escape seven years after her capture. Brie Larson stars as Ma in what looks to be another spectacular performance. Unsurprising. The kid, played by newcomer Jacob Tremblay, also looks like a revelation.
