It's no secret that I love books. It's also no secret that I love movies. I especially love movies based on books. I love it even more when they are done right. You may have heard me gush recently about the movie adaptation of Emma Donoghue's Room. I've gushed over Brie Larson's incredible performance as Ma (which just snagged her an Oscar for Best Actress) and her equally talented co-star Jacob Tremblay who gave, in my opinion, one of the best performances of 2015 as Jack. Their chemistry as mother and son is palpable, and the trust they had in each other is evident.
It's one of those rare adaptations that make you want your favourite novels to be made into movies. It's that rare occurrence where the emotions of the novel are effortlessly brought to life on the screen.
I cannot wait for someone else to fall in with this story, and for them to be entirely blown away by Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay's talent and commitment to this story.
