Room ★★★★½

Certainly the most masterfully developed characters in this badge of best picture nominees. The mind-boggling unconditional assurance in which Abrahamsom conducts this tastefully humane tale is almost unsettling. It would be relatively easy to take a bad turn and make it sound either artificial or simply unbearably disquieting to watch.

Usually a movie composed almost in its entirety by close-ups would get some (mostly deserved) flack for that, but here it fits the story amazingly well. Few times the world looked bigger on screen than in one particular sequence in this film, it completely feels like the aspect ratio changes.

Larson is unbelieavable as the mom, however, hands down, the best performance comes from little Tremblay, that somehow isn't nominated. SMH.
