ROOM Book + $30 Gift Card Giveaway | Ends 11.7.15
ROOM the movie opens in theaters on November 6, 2015!
Five year old Jack is just like any other boy his age, happy, curious, active, and deeply loved by his mother whom he calls ‘Ma’. Like most children his age he eats, sleeps, plays and learns – any one would think him a typical child. His life, however, is anything but typical—he and his mom are trapped in a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has named “Room.”
To Jack, the room is his world. It is everything he knows. It is where he was born and grew up. It is where he eats, sleeps, plays, exercises and learns – it is his world. To Ma, the room is their prison.
ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay in a breakout performance), a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson, SHORT TERM 12, TRAINWRECK). Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical—they are trapped—confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life. But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.
“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”.
