Five-year-old Jack has spent his entire life in “Room”, with just his mother and a series of objects for company. Ma is devoted to keeping Jack safe and happy, creating an entire universe for him within the confines of the walls. She is also attempting to conceal from him the awful truth that she has been brutally kidnapped and held hostage in the same space for seven years. When an opportunity arises for Ma and Jack to escape the clutches of their captor, Old Nick, it is up to Jack to attempt to bring the pair into a space which he knows nothing about and holds an entirely new set of fears: the outside world. Sensitively dealing with a horrifying scenario, this remarkable film tackles its subject with restraint, and ultimately contains a message of warmth, hope and love.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
