"Room" is one of the best movies I've ever seen adapted from a book. Gut-wrenching, emotional, and true to the original story. I say this as someone who rarely reads the book before seeing the movie. “Room” fell into my lap, because of a gift card and a quick glance at the “new releases section” at Barnes & Noble. I know people are often disappointed in adaptations, because writers change the plot, details are left out to create a two hour film, and/or nothing is as fantastic as your imagination. With this move from page to screen, I got everything I wanted and more. The shed looked smaller and more terrifying than I imagined. The escape was just as anxiety inducing. The recovery was just as challenging. I left the theatre just as moved as when I closed the book for the final time and I think you will too.
Be good to each other,
