Brie Larson says Room broke her in half
For half a decade — or the entirety of a young boy's life — a woman, Ma, and her son, Jack, have been trapped in a room with a single skylight. Their only human contact is with their kidnapper. But Ma has a plan.
That's the premise of Room, a stunning new film based on the award-winning book by Irish-Canadian writer Emma Donoghue.
Today, lead actress Brie Larson joins Shad to detail her extreme preparation for the role, why she's not interested in playing perfect women, and the emotional reactions she's seen in the film's first audiences.
