Room

Love knows no boundaries


Room
This week's Oscar hopeful has almost 200 wins and nominations to its credit. In essence it is an exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child. After a 5-year-old boy and his Ma escape from the enclosed surroundings that he has known his entire life, he makes a thrilling discovery: the outside world. As he experiences all the joy, excitement, and fear that this new adventure brings, he holds tight to the one thing that matters most of all: his special bond with his loving and devoted Ma.
