Room, 2015 - ★★★★★

I've waited over two months to see the second half of Room and it didn't disappoint. The first half remains just as brilliant on a second viewing and if had ended at the point I'd still be satisfied. The final sequence of events in the first part of the film builds to such a satisfying conclusion via a range of emotions.

I was worried that second part would take things in a different direction and not be as effective but it's here that the heart of the film really starts beating. It's great to see both Larson and Abrahams mature into such profoundly brilliant roles (infront and behind the camera) and Jacob Tremblay is just fantastic as Jack.
