An excerpt from my review:
“Room is an emotional gauntlet….one of the reasons this unsettling subject isn’t merely bearable but actually worthwhile is that it’s never gratuitous. Room is a character-study, immersing us into the authentic minutia of a mother and son in the most strained of circumstances…but does so without succumbing to the subject’s (or the genre’s) most salacious elements.”
