Opening in Toronto today, then releasing Oct. 30 in Vancouver and across Canada on Nov. 6 is Room, based on the novel by Emma Donoghue, who also wrote the screenplay. This film won the People’s Choice Award at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and it’s one of our faves – a fascinating look at a five-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) who’s been held captive his entire life. His mother (Brie Larson) was kidnapped by a sexual predator when she was 17, but she comes up with an escape plan.
