os­car-win­ner Brie lar­son is mag­nif­i­cent as 24-year-old Joy, kid­napped and held in a cramped room for seven years. The story, though, is told from the per­spec­tive of her five-year-old son Jack (a won­drous per­for­mance by Ja­cob Trem­blay), who has known noth­ing but this tiny space and filled it with his imag­i­na­tion. A tough but in­cred­i­bly hu­mane film that un­der­stands we are ca­pa­ble of hor­rific acts, but also that this is more than bal­anced by our ca­pac­ity to love and care for each other.
