Room (Best of 2015 Series)

Many Catholics aren’t hip to new-ish movies of worth (having shunned the world and all); and if they are trying to watch a movie, it’s usually  from their couch, because who can afford to go out (especially if you need a babysitter)?

That’s why I’ve decided to branch off from the popular Best of 2016 Series and start a Best of 2015 Series: these movies are still new enough that you may not have seen them, but they are also widely available via streaming services, so you can watch them comfortably and affordably.

The first entry in this series is my favorite movie of all from 2015: Room,  starring Brie Larson.  Directed by Lenny Abrahamson based on the Emma Donoghue novel, it is an emotionally wrenching but beautiful story of love, survival, learning, and growing under dire circumstances.

And since TheTimMan doesn’t watch new (or new-ish) movies, I am joined once again by the Master, Bo Bonner, in thoroughly critiquing and appreciating this masterpiece.

But before you listen, go watch the movie (it’s available on Amazon Prime, among many other places).
