  • Lawrence Toppman

    The two most frightening concepts in Room, one of the most remarkable movies of 2015, are freedom and the lack of it.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    In someone else's hands, Room easily could have become a horror movie. Instead, we get an emotional roller coaster ride -- at turns touching, harrowing, crushing and flat-out beautiful...Along the way, Abrahamson's Room becomes an immensely rewarding film, and the kind of movie that promises to stick with audiences long after the closing credits roll.

  • Steven Rea

    Amazingly - and this movie is amazing - Room is a story of hope, of possibility. Sure, your stomach will be in knots, your fingers clenched, your heart racing. But it will also fill that heart with a sense of the goodness, the courage, the enduring love that is out there to be discovered - and to be held onto with the fierceness of life itself.

    Room is a film of tiny little miracles.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    With visual and psychological precision, Abrahamson brilliantly evokes the experience of living outside of everyday reality. And he does so without resorting to either creepiness or sentimentality.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    As wrenching as Room is, especially during its grim first hour, it contains an expansive sense of compassion and humanism thanks to the sensitive direction of Abrahamson.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It just might be the most impressive piece of filmmaking I’ve seen in 2015, and it features a great lead performance by a rising star, a memorable supporting role by a familiar veteran — and one of the most amazing acting jobs by a child I’ve ever seen.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Room unfolds with the privilege of seeing and experiencing the world for the very first time, which is maybe the best we can ever expect from a medium like the cinema.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Room is astonishing: It transmutes a lurid, true-crime situation into a fairy tale in which fairy tales are a source of survival.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    This drama is as big as all outdoors in scope; poetic and profound in its exploration of the senses; blessed with two transcendent performances, by Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay; and as elegantly wrought as any film that has come our way in a very long while.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Larson has done exceptional work before... but the way she has taken the deepest of dives into this complex, difficult material is little short of astonishing. The reality and preternatural commitment she brings to Ma is piercingly honest from start to finish, as scaldingly emotional a performance as anyone could wish for.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Too grim and heartbreaking for some viewers, Room is nevertheless an extraordinary film so powerful and unforgettable that it must be seen.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Room is more than the title of one of the year’s most powerful movies — it’s a state of mind that’s unbearably tense and as claustrophobic as a straitjacket

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Room is a startling movie experience, peculiar in setting and profoundly simple. It's a story of love born out of unseen horror, of nurture conquering nature. Room must be felt to be believed.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Boosted by award-caliber performances and a perfectly struck tone, it becomes one of the more moving dramas of the year and an early, dark-horse award-season contender.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Director Lenny Abrahamson seamlessly translates Donoghue's work into cinematic terms with his relentlessly compelling adaptation. However, the drama owes just as much to its two stars, Brie Larson and newcomer Jacob Tremblay, whose textured performances turn outrageous circumstances into a tense and surprisingly credible survival tale.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    Room is simply a movie about mother and son trying to adapt to the outside world after years of forced captivity. And the surprise is how succinctly it captures this drastic life change from the perspective of five-year-old.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Director Lenny Abrahamson has made a deeply moving story about how adults try to explain the world to their children — even when they don’t always understand it themselves. And Brie Larson gives a tremendous performance as a mother who must be strong for her boy, until she suddenly can’t be anymore.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Room is a terrific movie, one that has two outstanding performances, confident direction and a story line that is both harrowing and moving.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Lenny Abrahamson's shattering drama Room borrows its fictional plot from the tabloids and strips it of sensationalism.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Room is ultimately not something you’d readily call enjoyable, but it is a cathartic and provocative reminder that life is full of possibilities and outcomes.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Room is honest and challenging but it’s more uplifting than one might expect from a film with such a horrific backstory.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    The real trick, of course, was casting the perfect child actor to carry the heavy load, and Tremblay is a wonder. The smart camera work helps highlight Jack’s perspective, but Abrahamson has also coaxed a genuine, marvelous performance out of the kid that’s key to the film’s emotional weight.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The story takes a surprising turn midway through, a change in direction that deepens the experience for the viewer, making us culpable in at least part of the misery these two face.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Room deserves to be seen unspoiled. All you need to know is that the performances of Larson and Tremblay will blow you away.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    An intensely felt cinematic experience. Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    The film, never sensational or saccharine, is a tough but tender tribute to the creative power of maternal love.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    On their own, each segment of Room is tense and emotional. But they’re even better placed back-to-back.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    Brilliant and moving stuff; another hit for Abrahamson.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Though it goes to places as dark as any you could imagine, Room carries at its heart a message of hope: Two people in four walls can create a world worth surviving for, if they love each other enough.

    Slate Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    If Abrahamson were as gifted with a camera as he was with his cast (he inspires subtlety even from the tiny Tremblay), Room could have been truly worthy of the astonishing performances that provide its foundation.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    It’s a testament to the story’s underlying integrity that, even when deprived of some of the elements that made Emma Donoghue’s 2010 book so gripping, director Lenny Abrahamson’s inevitably telescoped but beautifully handled adaptation retains considerable emotional impact.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The parent/child relationship at the movie's core is endlessly fascinating.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    Room has unforgettable, must-witness performances, and its soulful mother and son narrative is one of the most touching dynamics you’ll see in theaters this year.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    Larson excels at determined despair, simultaneously evincing vulnerability and fearlessness. It’s an exciting, tour-de-force performance by an actress who announces herself as one of the best of her generation. If only the film around her were as bold.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Overall, it’s a decent shot at a tall target, but real credit is due the lead actors, with Larson expanding beyond the already considerable range she’s previously shown with an exceedingly dimensional performance in a role that calls for running the gamut, and Tremblay always convincing without ever becoming cloying.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    While it flickers with grace and imagination during its initial half, largely because of Jack, it devolves into a dreary, platitudinous therapy movie in its second, largely because of Ma.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    It ought to be a triumph. Somehow, though, it lacks the flooding emotional force Donoghue gave it on the page.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Nigel M Smith

    While the film boasts exemplary performances, it fails to register on a level as profound as its source due to its director’s sometimes shaky grip on the material.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    In the end, the film shakes down as a kind of eat-your-spinach exercise, a movie that’s worthy and perhaps good for you, but is labored and only enjoyable intermittently.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Dopey as the film is on a plot level, it’s equally vapid in its psychology.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    A prize-winning page-turner becomes 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 Film Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Tough, but resilience is amply rewarded. If last year’s larky Frank suggested Abrahamson was a director to watch, this makes him a director to be cherished.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    There are some plausibility issues in Room, but this is a disturbing and absorbing film, shrewdly acted, particularly by Larson. It lets the audience in; it does not just let the nightmare stun them into submission. You make a real emotional engagement.
