'Room' on Star Movies, 11/2/2017
The movie ‘Room’ will be premiering on Star Movies, Star
Movies HD and Star Movies Select HD at 6.30 pm on 11/2/2017, i.e. tomorrow.
The movie, based on the book ‘Room’ by Emma Donoghue, tells the story of a woman named Joy Newsome
and her five year old son, Jack. They are both held captive by “Old Nick” who
had kidnapped Joy seven years back. Jack’s whole life has been inside the room
and he has never been in touch with the outside world. His mother acts as the
epitome of courage, all for his sake. How they manage to survive this ordeal
forms the crux of the movie.
‘Room’ was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best
Actress, Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Director. Of these,
Brie Larson won the Best Actress Award. The movie also received a number of
other prestigious awards and accolades. Rotten Tomatoes has given it a rating
I haven’t read the book yet. Anyway eagerly awaiting the
movie premiere tomorrow.
