Movie Monday: Room

Movie Monday is a weekly feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

This week, I want to talk about:


Room is a drama about a woman who is captured and lives in a small room with her five years old sonsoba Jack. Trying to make his son’s life as normal as she can, she plans how to save him and escape from the man who took the world away from them.

Room is based on the novel written by Emma Dogonhue, who also wrote a screen play for the movie adaptation.

It has been a little over six months since I read the book, but I still remember it very clearly.

I remember  it was an emotionally hard read for me and I also remember that the narrator, a five years old Jack, got on my nerves from time to time.

And although I liked the book very much, I am pleased to say that I liked the movie so much better. I never, not even once, found Jack to be annoying, but could understand him so much better and got attached to him on a strong level.

This movie was so emotional, it brought me to tears multiple times (especially the part closer to the end, when Jack is talking about happenings from his perspective).

I know this movie has Oscar nominations, and now when I saw it, I hope that I’ll see Brie Larson on the stage as a winner in the Best Actress category.

If you still haven’t, I recommend you to go and see this movie while it is still in theaters. But don’t forget to bring tisshues with you, because you will need them.

  1. This book is on the top list of my to-buy this month. I watched the movie on the plane while on the way back here last month. I cried so many times. I really love Jack. I love all about this movie.

  2. I heard the book was good but I didn’t know it was made into a movie. I don’t know much about it other than what I read here, but I should read the book!
