| Infinitely deep, an experience I will not forget.
*Insert all 9 & 10 reviews here* I was in awe during the entire film. Lenny Abrahamson & the writing team made sure there was not one dull moment. The addition of "insignificant" characters and plot twists are later realized to be so significant and influential in keeping the film alive throughout its duration. It was the little things that made this story one of the best I've seen in a long time. I experienced an entire palette of emotions all at once and was left in a deep level of curiosity and reflection. Very few films have the power to continue to influence its audience after the credits. Room is endless in the most beautiful way.

Did You Know?


In some scenes in Joy's teenage bedroom, a poster from the famous band Radiohead's OK Computer album era is shown. The poster reads the lyrics of a track from OK Computer, "Fitter Happier", in which a robotic voice speaks about "modern human" in an ironic and criticizing way, and ends with the lines "fitter, happier, and more productive, a pig, in a cage, on antibiotics". There's also a illustration of Thom Yorke, vocalist of the band, on the wall behind Joy's bed.


Ma: Ssh. Go back to sleep.
Jack: Once upon a time, before I came, you cried and cried and watched TV all day, until you were a zombie. But then I zoomed down from heaven, through skylight, into Room. Whoosh-pshew! And I was kicking you from the inside. Boom, ...


The police cars say Akron Police Department and cars have Ohio license plates, but just about every scene that's outdoors in a non-residential area has recognizable Toronto landmarks (e.g. Nathan Phillips Square, Apache Burger, Victoria Mills silos, Bloor Street Bridge). Also, Akron has 15 buildings that are over 150 feet tall, but the view from the hospital window has about 30 skyscrapers.

Crazy Credits

In the "Special Thanks to" part of the credit, there's the name of Jack White, the guitarist and vocalist of the band The White Stripes, a poster of which can be seen in a scene in Joy's bedroom.
