In celebration of National Canadian Film Day 150 and Canada's 150th birthday, we will be showing Room.
Winner of the Best Actress Oscar for Brie Larson and nominated for four Academy Awards in total, this adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s best-selling novel follows a young mother and her son as they make an escape after years of captivity.
A Canadian-Irish co-production, Lenny Abrahamson’s moving, enchanting film is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser that won’t leave a dry eye in the house. Room is a movie with massive heart, anchored by incredible performances by Larson and gifted Canadian child actor Jacob Tremblay.
Room also won nine Canadian Screen Awards and the Toronto International Film Festival’s People’s Choice Award.
Room is rated Parental Guidance (PG) by the Manitoba Film Classification Board.
