Synopsis

A major film starring Brie Larson, winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress and the Best Actress BAFTA
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, the Orange Prize and a Richard and Judy Book Club selection.

Jack is five. He lives with his Ma. They live in a single, locked room. They don't have the key.

Jack and Ma are prisoners.

Room by Emma Donoghue is an extraordinarily powerful story of a mother and child kept in isolation, and the desire for, and price of, freedom.

In the media

This is a truly remarkable novel. It presents an utterly unique way to talk about love, all the while giving us a fresh, expansive eye on the world in which we live
New York Times Book Review
This book will break your heart . . . It is the most vivid, radiant and beautiful expression of maternal love I have ever read
Irish Times
Startlingly original and moving . . . Endearing and as utterly compelling as The Lovely Bones
