Brie Larson is about to delve into some coarse dramatic terrain that will make Short Term 12 look like a walk in the park. Deadline reports that the actress has boarded Lenny Abrahamson’s Room where she’ll play the role of Ma, a captive mother living in modern day slavedom.
Gist: Based on Emma Donoghue 2010 novel partially inspired by the 2008 case of Austrian woman Elisabeth Fritzl, this is about a woman (Larson) kidnapped as a teenager who has been held captive for years in a tiny room where she lives with her 5-year-old son Jack. To the boy, Room is the only home he’s ever known.
Worth Noting: The 2010 novel won a slew of prizes and was among New York Times Best Books of the Year.
Do We Care?: It’s difficult to look forward to a harrowing project where rape, offspring, violence and confinement are strewn into the narrative, »
