Room confines us in a setting reminiscent of Plato’s myth of the cave. The confines of this space are shared by Joy and her son, who have been help captive in that room for seven years. Room is one of the most extraordinary tales to have been captured in film for it is a celebration of life like none other.
But the real struggle begins when they are free. We see Jack and Joy wading through a world as alien it can be to them, and starting to appreciate even the hellish life they lead in that shed called the Room. The movie is adapted from the book of the same name, which was loosely inspired by a real incident of the same nature, making this one of those rare cases where the truth is far more powerful than anything the imagination can invent.
Brie Larson is mesmerizing as Joy. Her performance brings about a honest brutality to her character missing in cinema since Charlize Theron graced the screen in Monster. Lenny Abrahamson creates extremely complex characters in the form of Joy and Jack, for they both form the emotional backbone of this movie. He materializes a beautiful mother-son relationship where both characters plunge into emotional distress, with only the thoughts of the other one helping them sail through.
Room creates an atmosphere through its deliberate slow-pacing to let the us, the viewers, soak in the same emotions Jack experiences when a whole world is thrown out to him, a world seemingly endless in comparison to his 11 ft × 11 ft existence. The scene in which Jack finally sees the world is one of the greatest moments in cinema, which in any given day, would give a stiff competition to the scene where Pandora surfaces on the screen in Avatar.
Room is one of those unforgettable experiences one cherishes long after the movie ends and is without a doubt, one of the greatest movies ever made.
