Lenny Abrahamson’s adaptation of Emma O’Donughue’s best selling book, Room, opens in the US on limited release this weekend.
Distributor A24 are rolling out the film on an October 16th platform release in New York and Los Angeles before a nationwide expansion on November 6th.
The film made its world premiered in September at the Telluride Film Festival to rave reviews, and is already the subject of much Oscar talk, having taken home the Grolsch People’s Choice Award at this years Toronto International Film festival and the Best Narrative Feature at the Aspen Filmfest in Colorado.
Starring Brie Larson, Joan Allen and William H. Macy, Room tells the harrowing story of a young woman (Larson) and her 5-year-old son, Jack (newcomer Jacob Tremblay) who have been locked in a 10-foot by 10-foot single room as prisoners for multiple years. The room is the only home Jack has ever known, but as his curiosity is building alongside his Mothers own desperation, she knows it cannot contain either indefinitely…
Room is an Element Pictures and No Trace Camping production in association with Film4, Telefilm Canada, and the Irish Film Board. It is produced by Ed Guiney and David Gross.
