Room | Ratings & Reviews

"Irish director Lenny Abrahamson, who made his mark with 2012's underappreciated thriller What Richard Did, follows up 2014's festival favourite Frank with this sensitive adaptation of Emma Donoghue's novel. A much more direct cinematic experience than the intriguing-but-inscrutable Frank, Room leans in to its harrowing subject matter and delivers an uplifting and rewarding tale of love and resilience."

"Beautifully handled adaptation retains considerable emotional impact."


"A moving, harrowing and redemptive drama about the ties that bind a mother to her child. Be warned: one box of tissues may not be enough."

Total FilmTotal Film

"A heartrending exploration of the worlds that parents create with their kids, the devastation that arises when those mountains move, and the ineffable fulfillment that results from climbing the peaks together."

Time OutTime Out

The GuardianThe Guardian

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A gripping film, and not to be missed."


"Tough, but resilience is amply rewarded."
