(USA) Based on Emma Donoghue’s 2010 novel in­spired by the Josef Fritzl case, “Room” is the story of a woman (Brie

Lar­son) who was held cap­tive in a back­yard shed for seven years, where she gave birth to and raised her five-year-old son Jack (Ja­cob Trem­blay)—a re­sult of rape by her cap­tor “Old Nick”—all alone. Touch­ing and ter­ri­fy­ing at the same time, “Room” is a hard movie to watch, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.
