Get Me Out Of Here

Lenny Abrahamson’s Room, starring Brie Larson as a young woman in captivity with her five-year-old son, is a bland Lifetime story that falls into the trappings of a tearjerker. Despite a few early taut scenes, and some well captured close-ups and handheld shots from DP Danny Cohen, Room falls short, as generically sappy music accompanies a cliched victim narrative that unravels into an uninteresting, strangely unrealistic account of survival. A disappointing follow-up to Abrahamson’s previous effort, Frank, an off-beat dramedy about idiosyncratic musicians.
