Lucy Jacobs is a small-town girl who has started her freshman year at a big-city university. When Lucy returns home for Thanksgiving break, she suspects she is about to get turkey dropped: dumped by her high school sweetheart.
A Spare Room takes place in a small town and centers around 2 main characters, and their struggles after the modern war in the Middle East.
David (played by Martin Sensmeier) is a quiet, hard-to-crack, ex-military man that has a secret. You'll see hints with flashbacks & eventually learn the whole story on how he acts the way he does.
Lillian (played brilliantly by Skyler Samuels) is a 20-something military wife, that lost her husband in the war. Lillian is struggling with money, as well as being the guardian of her younger brother, named Arrow, whom has down syndrome. Lillian realizes her party days are gone & she must stay focused & responsible, much to the dismay of her boyfriend Greg.
Arrow is played by newcomer Cole Sibus, who channels Leo DiCaprio in Whats Eating Gilbert Grape. Arrow deals with his adolescence, going to school & befriending a beautiful girl (played by Stefanie Scott).
Arrow works his charm and eases the tension of the movie. He brings out the best in David, Lillian & Greg (played by Thomas Cocquerel).
All their lives will intertwine & once you learn the whole story, you may be surprised by how it ends. All-in-all, I'd say open your heart & give A Spare Room a try.
