Brie Larson on the difficulty of making “Room”
There are moments in life where you're witness to something great and it just doesn't register until later.
So it was for me seeing the Academy Award Best Picture nominee "Room."
I saw the film with a friend in Atlanta last month and walked away thinking it was a solid, indie-type picture with a lack of story. In the days and weeks that have followed, though, I've reflected on the story the film does tell and have come to realize just how powerful a film "Room" is.
A story of imagination, sexual abuse, parenting hardship, and the toughness of adjusting to normal life, "Room" is a hard watch, but is as important a film as any that was made in 2015.
