TIFF: ‘Room’ Star Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay Q+A

Sunday Slacker time. I wanted to share a couple of Q+Awith the cast of Room at TIFF. First up a short 3 minute THR clip which illustrates how closely and how beautifully Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay bonded and worked together, I’m going to say, like mother and son. That’s followed by a 12 minute segment which really underlines the fact that as dark as the subject matter is, the film celebrates that there is HOPE even in HOPElessness. Lenny Abrahamson, the visionary director of Frank—putting Michael Fassbender inside a big Jack-in-the-Box hamburger-like head for most of a movie takes some sort of vision—directed, and author Emma Donoghue scripted. Donoghue’s feeling about the film adapted from her own book?  “I don’t want to be disloyal to fiction but there are places only cinema can take you.”
