If you have read the 2010 novel Room by Emma Donoghue you will know what a wonderfully captivating plot line it has, it is a story of emotional discovery and the unbreakable bond between a mother and her five year old son through huge adversity. I have a wonderful competition in collaboration with StudioCanal for one of my readers, in the run up to the release of the Award Winning film on the 15th January 2016 to win a bundle of merchandise from the amazing new movie and also three amazing StudioCanal DVD’s to enjoy as well.
The story is told from the point of view of Jack, the five year old boy who lives with his mother ‘Ma’ and the Room they live in is all he has ever known as seven years ago his mother was abducted by ‘Old Nick’ who keeps them both captive. As the plot develops Ma decides through a series of events that it is time she must free her son and devises a plan to fool Old Nick and get her son to safety.
The story unfolds and the heartbreaking tale is a poignant journey of a five year old boy who has only known the safety of Room and his mother. To protect him while in captivity Ma made Jack believe there was nothing outside of the protection of Room, and as Room was all that Jack had known the outside world once faced becomes a scary and overwhelming place. What follows is the journey that Jack and Ma take to escape to confines of their imprisonment and re-unite with Ma’s family and a world Jack was unaware existed. It is an emotional and confusing journey which neither Ma nor Jack are equipped psychologically to deal with, and as the story draws to it’s end will Jack be able to live without the safety of all he has ever known – living in Room.
The film adaptation is directed by Lenny Abrahamson and stars Brie Larson, Joan Allen, William H. Macy, Sean Bridgers and Jacob Tremblay and is due for release in cinemas on the 15th January 2016.
