Exclusive Interview: Director Lenny Abrahamson on Room


Having picked up the top prize at the Toronto International Film Festival, Room is undoubtedly in with an outside chance of picking up the Best Picture at the forthcoming Academy Awards. We had the pleasure of sitting down with the man at the helm, Lenny Abrahamson, to discuss this memorable project.

Abrahamson discusses how he managed to take such a dark narrative and create something so ineffably uplifting, as well as the joy in discovering young Jacob Tremblay, and the wondrous performance from lead star Brie Larson.

Room is released on January 15th. You can watch our interview with Brie Larson here, and read our five star review here.
