Storyline

In contemporary Houston, Julia Barker and her husband live paycheck to paycheck; she delivers meals on wheels and works Bingo nights. She's stressed. She's gotten over-weight and doesn't recognize the puffy and tired face she sees in the mirror. She's having migraines and blackouts, and she's seeing visions - of a desolate room. Suddenly she leaves for New York City, checks into a cheap hotel, and goes in search of the room. She follows any sign she can find: a sudden encounter with an old friend, a meditation group, a Tarot reading, and an invitation to a party. Is she getting closer? But to what?

This is excellent independent art- not mainstream garbage.
27 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Room" is one of my favorite films. I really love the the sounds and the imagery, as well as he story itself. It's very real to me, and stimulates great emotion. I have recommended it several times to people. I can only explain my love for this piece in this way: I feel that it is both a literal and abstract expression of a very real depth that many of us fail to come to terms with- something that remains unsupportable in our psyches. This film goes even further beyond touching down on that sadness and emptiness, as well as the desperation of finding some relief in the great pursuit of those answers that are nearly impossible to find. Although the concept may not be easy to explain, or for some to open themselves to comprehend, it is deeply felt and shoots right through the soul. Amazing experience that gets better each time I watch it. You're real artists. I appreciate what you do. I will look forward to making it a point to check out future projects submitted.
