Room ★★★★★

A gut-wrenching survival tale of love, hope and endurance, Room burrows under your skin and burns deep into your psyche with its nail-biting suspense, heart-ripping pathos, poetic realism, cathartic profundity, nuanced characterization and wondrous celebration of life. Devastating and hopeful at the same time, incarcerating and escapist, fragile and stoic, literal and metaphoric, absorbing and surreal, deeply intimate and universal, gritty and firmly grounded in reality, yet always inspiring, transcending and life-affirming, Room is a breathtaking cinematic revelation and one of the finest films of 2015.
