A woman and her son are held captive in a room for 7 years and when they are released, the son gets to experience the outside world for the first time. Starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, and Sean Bridgers.
This film is phenomenal. It’s real and gritty and honest. It shows the complexity of what it is like being held captive and the reality of the release. At time, it seems that the story is slow moving, but that shows the reality of time in captivity. Of course, this just shows one perspective of what it is like being held captive and then released. I really enjoyed the release part of the story due to the fact that it isn’t shown on films often. Even though the story is slow and isn’t as rounded as others, the performances by Larson and Tremblay is brilliant. This film is worth a watch.
