Viewing and Discussion: Room

  • March 18, 2016
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Instructor:  Weyler Greene & Kaitlyn Whitebread

Room a movie about a mother and her five year old son trapped inside a sparsely furnished 10-by-10 foot space by a man who had abducted the mother seven years before.  Surprisingly, the focus of this film is not a crime story! It is about a profound relation between a mother and her son, their liberation, their healing. It is about the capacity of relationship to empower.

The mother is played by Brie Larson, who just won the Best Actress Academy Award for her work in this film. About this movie Larson stated, “it is a story of love and freedom and perseverance and what it feels like to grow up and become your own person.” Psychologically, it is a story of the healing of trauma and the recovery of a sense of self. Join us for a viewing and discussion of this very deeply moving film
