'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 of 94%.

I haven’t read the book yet. Anyway eagerly awaiting the movie premiere tomorrow.

Direction: Lenny Abrahamson
Screenplay: Emma Donoghue
Starring: BrieLarson, Jacob, Tremblay, Joan Allen
