Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.30.15] thriller



In what has got to be the strangest marketing campaign of all time, the first poster and trailer for ROOM, a new thriller starring Brie Larson as a young woman who’s been held captive for years along with her 5-year-old son Jack has emerged from distributor A24.

With the tagline "Love Knows No Boundaries" and a sunny poster than makes the film seem like an uplifting family drama, I imagine you'll be slightly shocked to watch the trailer, which is deeply unsettling.

Even the synopsis is oddly vague, going so far as to leave out the film's high-concept: "A modern-day story about the boundless love between mother and child."


Room is based on a novel by Emma Donoghue, who also wrote the film's screenplay. It is directed by Lenny Abrahamson who you might know from his recent indie hit Frank.

Watch for Room to hit sometime later this fall.
