“'Room' unfolds with the privilege of seeing and experiencing the world for the very first time, which is maybe the best we can ever expect from a medium like the cinema.” - Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“It just might be the most impressive piece of filmmaking I’ve seen in 2015, and it features a great lead performance by a rising star, a memorable supporting role by a familiar veteran — and one of the most amazing acting jobs by a child I’ve ever seen.” - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“'Room' is astonishing: It transmutes a lurid, true-crime situation into a fairy tale in which fairy tales are a source of survival.” - David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“'Room' is an extraordinary film so powerful and unforgettable that it must be seen.” - Rex Reed, New York Observer

"'Room' is a film of tiny little miracles." - Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail
