Room ★★★★

Room is a moving film that will likely require the use of a tissue or two unless you're just a cold-hearted bastard. While the film does so many things right, its sole irksome misstep is when it introduces a television interviewer who poses such incredibly callous questions to this freshly escaped captive/rape victim that it unintentionally undermines the film by suddenly making things feel more like a Hollywood exaggeration than a realistic circumstance. Regardless, Room should be in the conversation for 'Best' this & that come award season while Brie Larson has made a particularly strong case to be honored with some trophies of her own.
