Love knows no Boundaries

This film is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by author Emma Donoghue, and explores the boundless love between a mother and her child. It tells the story of jack, a spririted 5-year-old and his loving and devoted mother. Their life, however, is anything but typical: they are trapped in a small, windowless space that Ma names Room. When Jack and his Ma escape from the enclosed surroundings that Jack has known his entire life, the boy makes a thrilling discovery: the outside world. As he experiences all the joy, excitement, and fear that his new adventure brings, he holds tight to the on thing that he knows his special bond with Ma.

 

This story was a thrill to watch as one only imagines situations similar to this one being told. It closes that gap and invites you to experience the situation that they are in with them. It is emotional when Mom tries to explain Room and her son would not understand. It is what he knows all his life and does not except that there is an existence besides it.  He knows no outside: no world, flowers, trees or pets. You experience the new experience with him, how he meets the world outside……… for the first time……..

A must watch!!
