We’ve been told that it’s okay to spoil the biggest revelation about Room, so here you go: Brie Larson is absolutely amazing in it.

As a young woman who’s spent seven years in isolation – five of them with her young son, Jack (Jacob Tremblay), Larson’s cautious, almost elemental performance communicates bone-deep trauma and profound resilience. Emma Donoghue’s adaptation of her own novel necessarily loses a lot of the lyricism, but director Abrahamson (Frank) makes the most of his limited resources.

Once the story opens up, a good deal of tension goes out, but Larson’s performance carries Room through to the end.
